  • Fascinating look at a cold war era defense bunker. It is hard to imagine how it really function fully manned.
  • First of all it is open even though on their site it is written otherwise. You need to call the number and book a tour at certain hour. Possible even on the same day. I have never seen ex-militarny facility So well transformed into a tourist facility. You get to visit all four floors of the facility with actual bedrooms, offices, contact center, gunpowder magasins and the artilery loading and targeting rooms. There are exhibitions of military related everyday objects. The guide is very nice, tells the story in an interesting way and in good English. Ot is possible to book a night in the soldiers bedroom and drink coffe in soldiers cantine. Remember to have cash to pay for the tickets.
