A Maginot Line fortress or ouvrage built from 1930 to 1940, Fermont Fort is located 7 kilometres from Longuyon in Meurthe-et-Moselle, on the border of the municipalities of Viviers-sur-Chiers, Montigny-sur-Chiers and Beuveille . Besieged several times without ever being captured, it is one of the most important Maginot Line fortresses to be open to the public.
The 2-hour tour takes the visitor to see its seven combat blocks connected by underground tunnels, and its equipment and weapons. After the ammunition store, you board a small electric train to discover an artillery bunker 30 metres underground. Then you continue to the infirmary, the barracks and the generator room, with their reconstructed scenes. Outside, you can see the other blocks, including a 75 mm gun turret in block 1, and a museum of Maginot Line equipment covering more than 1,000 m², including a unique exhibition of retractable gun turrets as well as numerous pieces of artillery.
