Cliff top strongpoint overlooking the western end of Omaha beach
Wn73 site overview
What to see
Wn73 is situated high on the cliffs at the western end of Omaha Beach at Vierville-sur-Mer and has a commanding view over the beach to the east of the position.
Located halfway up the cliff facing east you can find a block type construction known as a Pakstand where a 75mm Pak field gun was located. This little gun bunker is accessible with care and inside you can see a couple of niches and get an amazing view along the beach.
High on the cliff - now inside the holiday park - you can find a series of shelters and Tobruks. It's advisable not to venture to these buildings as there are on the edge of a very dangerous cliff face.
