The Vimoutiers Tiger tank is a World War II German Tiger I tank on outdoor display at Vimoutiers in the Orne Department, Normandy, France. The tank was abandoned by its crew in August 1944 during the latter stages of the Battle of Normandy. Originally resting in a ditch by the side of the road, it was bought by the local commune and put on display in 1975. It is listed as an historical monument. The Tiger tank is in poor condition after being outdoors for over 75 years.

  • This Tiger tank was captured and left to remain at its current location since WWII. It is worn out but not rusty and it may worth a stop-by if you are not visiting any war museum that has one in it. We went from Normandy to Val de Loire and passed by here
  • There are only nine left I think so, if tiger tanks are your thing, it's too good a chance to miss. Easy to park.
