Stp88 Glan Fort Nieulay site overview

What to see

Located at Fort Nieulay to the south west of Calais city centre, Stp88 Glan blends German concrete constructions with Napoleonic defences.
There has been a fortress here since 1525 but the current fort design was created in the late 1600s by Vauban to continue the protection of the city from the English. It includes gun positions, ammunition storage magazines, barracks, and an extensive tunnel system.
Unfortunately, many of the surface buildings were destroyed during the Blitzkrieg when German forces swept across northern France in May 1940.
Today the site features some of the remains from their occupation including a large group shelter, an open emplacement for a 5cm KwK anti-tank gun and a L408A command post bunker. The Fort is currently closed to the public and can’t be accessed.
