Very interesting battlefield location to visit. 100 years later and this Fort is slowly turning into a cave. Great visual of how the Earth will slowly take it back. Was chilly and wet inside from the rainy day outside. Amazing gun turrets to see.
Gwendal of Verdun Battlefield Tour (Royal Journey France), which booked through TripAdvisor, provided an outstanding WW1 overview, as well as comprehensive, in-depth details about the Verdun battlefield and forts. During the drive to the location, Gwendal also provided an overview of the Champagne Region of France. The Fort Douaumont visit gave keen insight into the static battle within, while also showing the terrain overview, trench warfare, and the moonscape the area became after the artillery shelling. Outstanding visit.
If you like the History of the WW1 Era, Fort Douaumont is a must. I arrived 1 hour earlier as the opening time, so I was alone when I when over the super structure and take a walk (and pictures) without people. The 22nd of April 2022 was a glorious weather day. In 1 hour, you have time to go easy and "ruhig" to take fotographs, to walk quiet and so on. It opens at 10:00 and the 2 ladies there were very nice. I do not speak French, but they helped me in both English and German. Very nice people. Please take your time with the Fort. Get the Audio guide. Dont rush, have a look at the rooms, the guns, the shells, the HISTORY. It is worth it. There are plenty of closed areas (that is why I added not so common pictures), so you can leave your imagination do the rest. It is well worth a visit. I bought a ticket for 2 Forts and the Memorial and the price of it is just very low: 16 Euros!!! And in both of the forts you get a free Audio Guide (French, German and English languages), at lesast until April 2022. So, enjoy the visit... I really did it.
Relive the History! Great place to visit. Make sure you have warm and dry outfit 👍🏻
Very impressive to see the Fort still stand after what happened to it during the World War.
