Caverne du Dragon is a WWI museum and official remembrance site where German forces used the old quarry as an underground barrack. The one-square-kilometer (0.62 square miles) cave network is called "The Dragon's Lair." The subterranean caverns were originally a tunnel system created by the limestone quarry during the 17th century. The caves are 20–40 meters (12–24 miles) below the surface. They were used as field hospitals and command posts by both the French and German forces.

  • Really interesting tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Been to the area loads of times and didn't even know it was there. Take a jumper as its cold in the tunnels.
  • Excellent tour. We turned up too late for the English tour but joined the French one as it was the last tour of the day. The guide made an fantastic job of making us feel welcome and did translate the key points in to English for us.
