  1. The history of the building already begun in the 1850s. Originally, a wood factory was built on the property, which was destroyed by a fire in the second half of the 19th century. Then there was a brewery with a restaurant, later a holiday home / recreation home of the “Trade Union Confederation”. The hotel, located near to a swimming pool in the forest, opened in the mid-1990s. Last guest reviews on the Internet report about unfriendly staff, bad food and unhygienic conditions. That might have been one of the reasons why the hotel was finally closed about 10 years ago. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23

  3. Ouvrage A28 is a smaller plant (petit ouvrage) of the Maginot Line. The site was surveyed by CORF (Commission d'Organisation des Régions Fortifiées), the Maginot Line's design and construction agency; A28 was approved for construction in May 1931. It was completed at a cost of 11 million francs by the contractor Duval-Weyrich of Nancy. The petit ouvrage was planned for construction in two phases. The second phase was to provide a separate entrance block a short distance to the rear. Heavy water infiltration required the provision of more extensive drainage work than originally planned. The galleries are excavated at an average depth of up to 30 meters (98 ft). The 1940 manning of the ouvrage under the command of Captain Coste comprised 127 men and 2 officers of the 161st Fortress Infantry Regiment. A28 played no significant role in either the Battle of France in 1940 or the Lorraine Campaign of 1944. After the Second World War it became part of a strongpoint in the northeastern defenses against Soviet attack. A28 remained under Army control until after 1971, when it was declassified and sold.

  4. Thanks! Yes, with only about 45 minutes we really had very little time to visit. But finally we still have visited the last place of our six day trip and it didn't fail. And for the short time we had, I'm quite happy with the photos.
