Geocache Description:


A quelques kilomètres de Thionville, a été construit pendant l'annexion allemande le fort d'Illange ou Feste Illingen .

 
Sa mission était d'assurer protection au fort de Guentrange (Feste Obergentringen ) et de sécuriser ainsi la gare de Thionville et d'interdire le franchissement de la Moselle. Grace à une batterie de 4 canons de 100mn et 3 compagnies d'infanterie en appuie.

 Le fort fut intégré à la Ligne Maginot après la première guerre mondiale.

 
  Je vous propose de le découvrir grâce à  une petite marche circulaire à travers casernes, postes de guet, parapets et bunkers.

Il n'y a jamais besoin de quitter le chemin!



 A few lilometers from Thionville there is a fortification constructed during the german occupation :" Le fort D'Illange".

  It's missionwas to secure the fortification of Guentrange and to keep the railway station of Thionville safe to prevent the crossing of Moselle.
  The fortification became part of the Ligne Maginot after the  first world war.

Discover this place by doing a circuit through it.


 You don't need to leave the path !
