Admire the preserved World War I and II fortifications in their original condition at Atlantikwall Raversyde. The Atlantic wall was a defense system built mostly by the Nazis during World War II to protect against the Allied forces. The museum's portion of the wall includes 2 km (1.24 mi) of trenches and 60 bunkers. Exhibits include World War II propaganda, dioramas, and photographs, as well as a cinema that screens documentaries. There are also activities for children including a treasure hunt through the museum. Be prepared for a lot of walking, as this museum covers a lot of ground, and be sure to bring an umbrella rain is in the forecase, as many of the museum's focal elements are outdoors.

  • From the historical point of view, there are no comments. Ii just missed a place to buy a water or a soda, before or after starting the trip. I felt like i will die of thirst after a 2 hours visit...

  • An outstanding site to visit, with restored bunkers and weapons/artillery in very good condition. The site’s website doesn’t do it justice as it consists of First and Second World War restorations...

  • Love this museum! Really gives you a good understanding and atmosphere of what WW1 and WW2 were like. Even though it covers of the quietest areas of wars, it is still chilling to learn about that time and the experience of those poor soldiers and civilians. Audio guide is great, in many languages, and the tickets are quite cheap. If you are in the area, definitely visit this place, you can definitely cover it in 1 hour if in a rush, or spend up to 4-5 hours if you want to absorb it all!
  • No booking needed now. A very good museum which takes longer to walk around than you would think. Interesting preserved bunkers from both world wars. Well worth the entrance price
