LA CITADELLE

The monumental silhouette of the Bitche Citadel emerges from the hills of the Northern Vosges like a ship fortified by Vauban and Cormontaigne, two geniuses of military architecture. Its tumultuous history is presented to you during a film tour, particularly the heroic episodes of the 1870 War.
