New: Now opened as a pop-up museum. Because of COVID-19 regulations, it is not possible to visit the casemattes with large groups in guided tours. So we open the Casemattes Waldeck as a pop-up museum. After a short introduction by one of our official guides, you and your household (people who live at one adress and share facilities) walk through the tunnels by yourself with a text. You book a timeslot for 1 to maximum 6 persons, who are all part of the same household.
