During all my time living and working in Germany on and off since 1974 I have never had the privilege to visit The Mohne Dam. We were provided with the opportunity during our holiday whilst en-route from Brussels to Berlin. What a fantastic experience and...More

Second time here and still as beautiful and moving. Back for the 75th anniversary of the raid, we visited today in glorious sunshine. As one of the other reviewers said, to stand on the dam where it was breached is poignant and the walk around...More

Called to see 'history'. Well laid out and very moving. Parking is ample and fast food is easy to get. Toilets are spotless.

Excellent photo opportunities here and you can walk over the dam. You really can take in the moments where the attacks happened. Refreshments and gifts available on site. Toilets cost 70 Euro cents. Very touristy but well worth a visit to see where the action...More

Visited for just an hour but lots more to see. Worth a visit without the Dambusters' history but more so as it shows the resilience of the German peoples, their engineering excellence and the bravery of those attempting to destroy it.
