Opened to the public in 1946 and subsequently restored, Jersey War Tunnels - German Underground Hospital encompasses an underground network of tunnels, fortifications, and military installations built by the Nazis in the 1940s. Intended to serve as part of the Nazi defense of the island, part of this particular set of fortifications were set aside to become an emergency hospital. In 2001, a permanent exhibit was unveiled and serves to illustrate the daily life of Jersey’s citizens before, during, and after the occupation.

  • Visited it a while back and it was a one-of-a-kind experience. The tunnels are deep and chilly, filled with old war machinery and replicated scenes. There are also many other unfinished tunnels, which are for safety reasons prohibited to the public. Ambiant sounds and lighting, along with war trivia and 'activities', make the tunnels an even better experience.
  • Unmissable experience in Jersey. Learn about the German occupation which may not have been as harsh as in other places in occupied Europe, but still packed with emotions coming from the oppression of the nazis that forced the islanders to give up their radios, their food, take a German young soldier for boyfriend, drive on the right side of the road and use the central European time.
  • Fantastic - I really enjoyed my time in the tunnels and discovered so much about life during the occupation. Thank you for a wonderful visit...
  • An excellent attraction. Informative and well put together.
  • Really fascinating and impressive museum. So many stories. Great way to spend the day if it's raining.
