A memorial museum keeping alive the memory of the fighting in the Vosges during the First World War.
Located on the historical site itself, the museum describes the living and combat conditions of the troops and all of the associated logistics involved.
The fighting is explained in a video projection.
Outdoors, on the battlefield, visitors can discover the positions of the German defences which are well preserved with their trenches, shelters and blockhaus, opposite the remains of the French positions, which were built from lighter materials
The close proximity of the frontlines and their respective positions provide a clearer understanding of the unimaginable difficulties faced by the attacking forces in 1915, and explains the heavy death toll in three months of fighting with 17,000 casualties recorded.
Museum accessible for wheelchair-bound visitors. On-site car park.
Disabled access : Yes
