The Bagnoles de l’Orne Second World War Memorial Trail
Did you know that the main support base for the Atlantic Wall was in Bagnoles de l’Orne? The Forêt des Andaines was the site of a large German Army depot during the Second World War. Enormous reserves of fuel, food rations and munitions, as well as tank sheds, were camouflaged beneath the trees.
This completely unknown history was revived with the opening of a 1½-mile pedestrian history trail along with its ¾ mile shorter alternative. There are information panels along the route that starts after after the steps by the tourist office car park.
