FOR GROUPS (minimum 10 people), possible visits to other dates, booking by phone or email here.

DEEP GALLERIES :  for the daring ones, the most comprehensive tours are offered. Given the configuration of the site (narrow passages, steep galleries), it is best to have a good physical condition and not to be claustrophobic. Two dates are proposed, in March and September. Visit the page life of the association to know them. Reservations are required.


Price guided tour (2 to 3 hours) : 3€/person

Reduced guided tour (in military uniform) : 1,5€/person

Price deep galleries (the day) : 5€/person

The departure of the visits is made from the hill at the car park.


(Appointment required)

The human suffering caused by the devastating conflict on this mound of Vauquois is beyond understanding. We, therefore, ask the teachers to tell their students that a respectful behaviour is expected during the visit. To best prepare activities related to this event, a teaching guide is available at the price of 5€ (+shipping on the page Bibliothèque.)

School visit price : 1,5 €/child
