The tour includes the most important monuments of the battle of Verdun (forts, the Douaumont ossuary)
The first world war falls gradually into oblivion even with the commemorations of the centenary. Yet a visit to Verdun is always very interesting, there are few places like this where you can still feel the breath of the battle. Nature still has the scar of the terrifying fights that occurred during the year 1916.
Remember the battle of Verdun has not identified a winner. After several months of fighting the protagonists have regained their former positions.
The underground Citadel of Verdun is the closest monument from the town center. The visit, more sanitized, is less interesting than that of the other forts,
Feel free to spend a weekend at the scene of the battle. It is necessary to have a car to visit the different places of the battle. It is better to consider a trip over two days because there are a lot of things to see.
