Fort De Schoenenbourg, Hunspach

As you descend 30 m (98 ft) underground to tour 3 km (1.8 mi) of subterranean bunkers at Fort De Schoenenbourg, you'll be reminded that no known weaponry in 1940 could destroy these armored bunkers. Completed in 1935, the fort was deemed indestructible when it withstood the assaults of German bombs in June 1940. After post-war reconstruction, the fort and underground tunnels survive today in excellent condition. You can descend on your own, or join a two-hour guided tour of the munitions entrance, troops kitchen, railway station, morgue, headquarters, explosives room, the blocks, and more passages. Wear warm clothes and comfortable shoes to the fort, as the underground area is a cool 13°C (55°F).

Beautifully restored and such friendly guides and multilingual.
  • Wonderfully restored part of history. It is more than worth the trip and the 2+ hours to see it all. Be prepared to walk at least 3km to see all 4 sections. You can cut it short, but you would miss the best part.
