Jersey - Fortified Jersey & the Underground Hospital


The German Occupation of Jersey began two weeks after the British government had demilitarised the Island. Jersey was occupied by German airborne troops on the 2nd July, 1940. Hitler ordered that the Jersey be turned into an impregnable fortress island.

Leaving the port enjoy the drive out to the south coast and Noirmont with its coastal fortifications & gun emplacements. Enjoy a walk around lovely Noirmont headland before rejoining your coach for the drive to visit the German Underground Observation Museum (also known as the Jersey War Tunnels or German Hospital)

On arrival you will be met by the curator who will personally show you around. The Museum is one of Jersey's most important World War 11 landmarks. To safeguard their possession and as part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall initiative, the Germans launched an enormous programme of defences in Jersey. The German Underground hospital is one of many such systems excavated all over the Islands. The labour required for this building work was supplied by the Organistation TODT, more than 5,000 OT labourers from all over Europe and North Africa were brought to Jersey.

Take a guided tour of the Hospital with your expert guides before returning to your ship.
