U-Boot Bunker / Museum Sous-Marin Espadon

Opposite the large U-boot bunker is a smaller German large U-boot bunker which serves as a museum. On display is a French submarine named "Espadon" which is lying in the water and can be visited. The submarine is post-war (1960) but is based on a German submarine from 1940.

On the roof of the bunker are two anti aircraft positions and a armoured turret. The roof is free to visit.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
