Spent a good hour here exploring the many passageways and rooms. The hand held guide was very imformative and the admission price very reasonable. However many of the tunnels are quite dark so if you don't like confined spaces explore outside the battery. There are...More

This attraction is on the D 514 coast road and really is a must see. There is ample free parking for visitors, a Tourist Information office and alongside a small bar for snacks and drinks. The battery positions are very accessible, still containing the guns...More

The only original German batteries still available for visitation. Free of charge (parking or entering). Take your time to visit it and walk around the batteries.

Very interesting place to visit if you are interested in WW2. There's quite a lot of tunnels and you are free to roam inside all the bunkers. There's also a good audio guide in lots of languages. Very friendly lady at the reception desk.
