Gros Ouvrage du Simserhof
All that can be seen of this fort on the Maginot line, which held out so valiantly against the Germany army in 1940, is the ammunition block with its reinforced door and casemates lying beyond a "Diamant" ditch. The fort is, in fact, located 30m/98ft underground. A vehicle takes you on a tour of the soldiers' barracks and the battleground, linked by 5km/3mi of galleries. An opportunity to understand the "phoney war", made up of successive battles and defeats to which the fort was subjected.
