Radarstation 1944

The museum is housed in the former German radar station in Douvres. This location was during the Second World War, the largest base in the region with the most radars and during this period, there were around 250 troops of the Luftwaffe installed on this base.
Today it's a museum where two well-preserved original bunker can be found. The museum shows the role and the technical developments of the radar. Also the last surviving "Würzburg-Riese" radar installation in France can be seen near the museum.
