Nearest station: Mutzig

Fort de Mutzig is an absolutely unique architectural, technical and military site. Located on the heights of Dinsheim sur Bruche, it will offer you a panoramic view of the start of the Bruche Valley. The largest and most powerful fortification in Europe in 1914 is today a symbol of peace and Franco-German reconciliation. Since 2014, the "Namenstein" monument which formerly marked the entrance to the site for the German army has welcomed visitors. It was reconstructed as it was for the inauguration of the Feste Kaiser Wilhelm II in 1896. 1871: the German Reich annexes Alsace and Moselle. The decision to build the Feste Kaiser Wilhelm II was taken by the emperor in 1893 in order to block the Alsace plain against any French offensive. Over the years, La Feste grew to have 22 armored turrets spread over 254 ha and housing a garrison of 7000 men. See the map
