The site beings the life of the german bunker system to life. The tour guide is very informative of the history of the site, and leeds you to think you are there at the time of the conflict. Ther is plenty of parking toilets and a gift shop. The staff are very friendly. The site is well preserved.
Visited with friends. The visitor centre/reception is in one of the case mates with a small gift shop and excellent toilets. The car parking is ample, with a picnic area, we had our lunch there. You are given a phone type device that you listen to as you reach different parts of the battery. The audio is brilliant and informative....
A must visit to get a better understanding of how the Germans fortified the coast and built these batteries. You walk around on your own with some signs posted telling you more information. You can even walk down inside the batteries. Very eary and solemn.
