German Fortification Tour

Tuk Tuk Tours

1 May - 30 Sep


Visit to the Batterie Scharnhorst and Batterie Mirus. Following collection from your home (or Albert Pier) we will take a scenic tour heading towards St Saviours. We will spend 30 minutes visiting the Batterie Scharnhorst which is predominantly in the open air. Then onto the Batterie Mirus which is mostly indoor, where the visit lasts approx. 45 minutes.

This is not a guided tour but your Tuk Tuk driver will give a brief informed overview of the fortifications whilst leading you through the tour.

In 2008 Festung Guernsey began renovating the Batterie Scharnhorst which is an open Emplacement originally housing four 15cm K18 weapons. On private land, the project unearthed 2 of the gun sites, personnel & ammo bunkers and trenches that had been partially filled in.

The Batterie Mirus was the largest gun battery in the Channel Islands and our visit explores the best-preserved bunker of the four making up the Batterie Mirus. The bunker has an impressive 20 rooms to look around following the restoration work by Festung Guernsey.

£80 per Tuk Tuk (includes the fee to Festung Guernsey for admission charges).
