Remembrance tourism and the Maginot Line

Because our destination is also a land of memory…

Unmissable vestiges mark a past that Alsace has known for several periods, especially during the Second World War. Several restored works are open to the public and offer tours!

The Maginot Line, the Fort of Schoenenbourg, Lembach Lime Kiln, Casemate, Vault Museum… but also certain places of memory of the Jewish heritage, will open their doors to you to trace the past and the history which built our territory.
