This is worth a stop for sure. Keep in mind that it is a bit claustrophobic. Some parts of the tunnels are really narrow, it has its unique charateristics, eventhough I don't consider it the most beautiful cave in Europe. Visit lasts 1 hour. Starts...More

Deep down in the caves you get to learn of the cave's role in housing people during the world wars. The guide did a fantastic job translating into French, Dutch, German and English
