WWIDouaumont Ossuary

The Ossuary of Douaumont is a WWI memorial and final resting place for 1300,000 solders that died in the Battle of Verdun. Building started in 1920 and finished in 1932.

A visit to the Ossuary of Douaumont best starts with the film Verdun des hommes de boue (Verdun, the men of mud) on the lower level next to the gift shop and ticket office. After the film you can visit the main hall on the ground floor and then climb up to the top of the Ossuary of Douaumont, where you will find a 360° view of the countryside.
