HWK Educational Possibilities Possibilities for all ages

Teaching Aids

Our teaching aids allow you to find out many aspects of Hartmannswillerkopf before, during and after your visit. They are primarily focussed on primary and secondary school pupils, available in French and German and adapted to the different school curriculums of both respective countries.

Three aspects are presented: The Franco-German Historial, the National Monument and the battlefield. Six themes are also discussed: the context of the First World War, mountain warfare, the battle of HWK, studying the Great War, field studying the artifacts and Franco-German relations.

Teaching App

A bilingue (French-German) teaching app for touch tablets is now available. The "1914-1918 Stories" app is designed to provide both eye-catching and appealing conundrums around both the permanent and temporary exhibitions. Completely bilingual, this app allows Franco-German classes to explore and experiment together. The pupils are asked questions and puzzles as they explore the Historial.

This app is another teaching aid, along with the educational booklets, that is particularly aided for primary and secondary school pupils. About forty touch tablets are available for visitors or, alternatively, the app can also be downloaded to your own tablets before your visit.

Archeological Trench

An archeological trench, with supporting teaching pack for primary and secondary school classes, is currently in the process of being developped.
