Nice collection of 60+ bunkers, some of them has been opened for you to have a look inside. This is a open door museum, so put on some good footwear. Mostly "Regelbau", and a wide collection of them. You get to see many different types of German bunkers and also a understanding of what purpose they had. The battery is... More

If you have forgotten what happen 70... More

Compared to a lot of other WW2 museums, this is by far the most boring. Only one bunker is on display and really not much to see. Worth a 15 minutes visit if you're in Hirtshals anyway
