Located on the battlefield of Verdun, the Trench of Chattancourt is a unique place as it was redug on the exact location of an active WWI frontline trench.
Capturing the original intersection where the Trench of Chattancourt and the Trench of Toulouse met, the reconstructed interior allows to relieve how french soldiers experienced life in the trenches in 1916.
Each part of the trench has been rebuilt as it was during the war thanks to orignal maps and documents, photographs and accounts of the soldiers who served here.

An incredible experience which will enable you to get another point of vieuw on the Great War
