If you get a chance it is worth the trip from Bruges to Oostende the location of the AtlantikWall Museum. Here you get to go through WWII bunkers built by the Germans. It is unbelieveably cool, everything is authentic and the walk through the tunnels...More

It is a very nice museum for those interested in WW2 history. You see a lot of the remaining parts of the atlantic wall and how was the life in it during the war.

Only by visiting a place like this will one grasp the enormity of the works that oppressive regimes did (and to a point still do) when trying to protect their territory. The vastness of tunnel network along this coast and the sheer enormity of the...More

Outdoor museum for anyone interested in WW2. The car park is poorly signposted but don’t give up it’s worth a visit. Discover the site at your own pace included in the admission is an audio guide.

Must see for every person interested in history especially in wwii. The site is marked with yellow arrows which allows one to follow the path through tunnels and bunkers. Would absolutely recommend seeing it!
