We visited friends who live outside Stuttgart. One Sunday we took a road trip and stopped at the Atomkeller. I never would have made it here without someone driving me. Haigeloch is a small unassuming village. The museum nestles in a cave. I was entranced by the video and audio information given over headphones inside the small room of the... More

This is the place that could have changed history - come and see where the Nazis hoped to develop the atomic bomb - but luckily failed. Small place - could do with more of the exhibits and films being presented in English and French as well as German.
