Incredible mass of concrete, you can see semi-collapsed battery equipped with preserved gun. Also there is a very nice museum describing the history of the battery. Text guide is available in English language. Visited in 9/2012

The only original German batteries still available for visitation. Free of charge (parking or entering). Take your time to visit it and walk around the batteries.
