Trip Planner: Europe / France / Hauts-de-France / Aisne / Oulches-la-Vallee-Foulon / Caverne du Dragon
Caverne du Dragon is a WWI museum and official remembrance site where German forces used the old quarry as an underground barrack. The one-square-kilometer (0.62 square miles) cave network is called "The Dragon's Lair." The subterranean caverns were originally a tunnel system created by the limestone quarry during the 17th century. The caves are 20–40 meters (12–24 miles) below the surface. They were used as field hospitals and command posts by both the French and German forces.
