German Military Underground Hospital

About the German Military Underground Hospital in Guernsey

The German Military Underground Hospital in Guernsey is the largest remaining structure from the German Occupation of the Channel Islands. Almost invisible from the surface, the tunnel complex covers 7,000 square metres and was hewn out of solid rock by slave workers for the German forces. The work started on this huge complex in 1944 when the D-Day landings occurred and it looked likely that considerable German casualties might need to be cared for. The hospital was never finished but its forbidding atmosphere serves as a reminder of the grim conditions that the slave workers lived in, many dying during its construction.

For those who want to explore more of the Occupation story, Guernsey History Trails offers a great app guide which is available to buy. Covering the Occupation 1940-1945, the 2 self-guided tour trails - the St Peter Port Trail by foot and the Island Trail - will let you walk in the path of history while enjoying some of the most beautiful vantage points in Guernsey. Each walk takes approximately 2 hours if you walk it in its entirety or you could alternatively explore by bicycle or car.
