Fort de Pré-Giroud, Vallorbe

"The Fort at Vallorbe is not only a military structure cut into the rock and hidden underground, it is also a museum that reconstructs the lives of ordinary soldiers during the 1939-1945 mobilization. Camouflaged as a chalet, you will discover a military structure in which our troops were mobilized during World War II. It is an amazing place that traces a part of our history; I guarantee that it will delight young and old alike."

Hans, former soldier
