The German Military Underground Hospital (Ho.40) and Ammunition Store (Ho.7) is the largest structural reminder of the German Occupation existing in the Channel Islands. This maze of tunnels covers an area of about 6,950 square metres (75,000 square...more

This is an interesting but not fascinating attraction. It doesn't have a lot of history or explanation, just a series of empty underground tunnels (which were very cold and wet when we were there). It's rather depressing, although there is an interesting section at the...More
The clue is in the name. Don't go expecting anything more.
It is a very atmospheric place. Largely vast and empty, its scale and structure are an imposing feat of dark World War 2 possibilities of what could have been.
Don't expect to spend the...More
This place comprises a collection of cold, damp, empty tunnels and rooms. It was built for military storage but part of it had a brief period of use as a hospital after D-Day, because the Germans expected an Allied invasion. When it became apparent that...More
The German Underground Military Hospital is a facility that consists in a variety of underground tunnels and rooms dug into a hillside by forced labourers for the German military that occupied Guernsey during World War Two. The rooms and tunnels housed both a hospital for...More

How anyone got better in the dark, cold (~10C) damp tunnels which were hospital wards ..... ? but maybe they didn’t. We found the displays in the early part interesting but then miles of cool damp tunnels turned out to be ammunition stores once.
The underground hospital is very eerie. Me and my partner were the only people in there. The music and footprints as we were walking around made it even more spooky. But it was very interesting! A must see when going on a trip or holiday...More
It may be a sobering thought the many Slave and Forced labours gave their lives to build these tunnels, but for a tourists its no more then several miles of cold damp tunnels with nothing much to see. Unless you are in to military history...More
Very eerie collection of tunnels built by slave labour during WW2, some objects on display around the entrance but not much else. By amalgamating some of the other very relevant WW2 items on Guernsey and Sark this could be turned in to a very interesting...More
