Ouvrage du Simserhof - Siersthal

The Simserhof is one of the largest artillery “ouvrages” on the Maginot Line. It withstood the German assault for over a month in June 1940, thus protecting the smaller forts around Bitche. The troops were allowed to surrender on June 30, 1940, several days after the signature of the armistice. The visitors travel on board a train equipped with a sound system. Special effects and 3-D films along the way depict the soldiers' life during the attacks and aerial bombardment of the fort. You will enjoy this original museography. You will also discover collections of original weapons and films from the military archives.
