When we visited museum was closed but the bunkers are open and you can wander round. Definitely worth seeing. Museum opening is very limited as it is run by volunteers but don’t let this put you off visiting.

Incredible fortifications and exhibits. Lots of artifacts and memorabilia. Staffed and excavated by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers. Wear comfortable shoes and appropriate outerwear as you are on the Atlantic Wall !

The area is full of World War 2 history. Not much to see but worth the price of admission. Views and landscape are cool.

Remnants of some of the more northward stretches of Hitler's Atalntikwall - well worth the tour, or exploring by yourself.

2 hours tour in which you get to know kind of all, even to much 😂😂. It's nice to get in some of the bunkers and you can also admire the amazing sunset!!
