Museé du Blockhaus d'Eperlecques

A gigantic bunker is located on the verge of the Eperlecques Forest. This WWII vestige, which is in the same state as it was left in 1945, was aimed at becoming a V2 launch base.

Unique in Europe you will see the 45m long V1 launching position that has been reconstructed on-site. Visiting this authentic monument located in the woods will give you the opportunity of comparing the V1 and V2 German weapons through an audio guided commentary.

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