Ligne Maginot - Fort De Schoenenbourg, Hunspach Reviews
its a great place and would have worked fro the French if not for the Germans went through the Netherlands and Belgium....oh and you are welcome for the 600th review
For a WWII enthusiast, this is as cool as it gets. Lots to see and read. Very informative. More extensive than I imagined. The French did a very good job here but seem not to have saved much. Prepare for a long walk if you want to experience it all. Take time to look around the neighbourhood above ground where elements if the facility are visible.
Impressive, well maintained, worth the visit and the thoughts about how not so long ago when so many people died there...
We visited during the month if April, when there are no guided tours for tourists (school groups or very large groups can arrange a personal tour). It took us 3 hours to complete the self guided tour (all placards have English translations which was greatly appreciated). The biggest disappointment was the inability to enter a turret. But we got to see how the turret went up and down with the aid of a volunteer. The highlight was the engine room where another volunteer (pictured in a blue sweater) explained everything to us in English. Very personable and kind. Be sure to use the bathroom located outside to the right (separate building) of the Maginot Line Entrance. There is a bathroom inside located in zone 4, but it's DEEP into the line. Be prepared to do quite a bit of walking! The costs to enter was €8 for adults, €6 for children as of April 2018. There is no gift shop, but there are postcards, a pin, 2 different commemorative coins, and literature available for purchase at the ticket counter.
Very interesting location with a great history. You can learn a lot about the WWII when you visit this location. Nice, powerful engineering constructions too. I recommend.
