Ostende – Atlantikwall (Raversyde)

Walk between trenches and bunkers and cross two world wars... The Atlantikwall is one of the leading attractions of the Belgian coast and one of three museums in Raversyde.

Around sixty bunkers, observation posts and artillery positions and the 2km of open or underground tunnels make up one of the best preserved parts of the ‘Atlantic Wall’, the infamous German defence line. It was built by the Germans during the Second World War from the France-Spain border to Norway. At the time, thousands of bunkers were built to protect the ports and prevent an allied assault. The museum also houses the only preserved German coastal battery from the First World War. All the constructions on the site have been restored to their original state and fitted out with authentic objects and furniture. The open-air Museum is the ideal place to experience the atmosphere of ‘The Longest Day’.
