Museum lies on a terrain that is covered with steep hills and right in the beach. It has over 50 bunkers that can be visited all year long and are opened all hours (except for the lighthouse). We had great time of exploring different types of bunkers and taking photos of an amazing landscape. If you hesitate if to visit... More

Although the weather was quite wet, it was a worthwhile walk around the bunker area, gun emplacements, search light bases, explosive stores etc. An easy enough walk from the town centre, about a kilometre, but there's a convenient car park if needed. And the whole thing is free!

Interesting to see the scale and extent of the coastal battery and to learn a bit more about our shared past.

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

A visit to the old bunkers in Hirtshals is a good reminder of who the world was - and how long we have come since. It is an amazing preserved bunker which gives an unique insight to what the germans were doing in WWII and how they were protecting the coastline against invation. If you have forgotten what happen 70... More

The bunkers were very cool, and the lighthouse was beautiful. The standout for me however, was the trails between the bunkers and the amazing views they provided. Be sure you really take the time to walk around.

During the German occupation, they forced Denmark to pay for, and build these bunkers, as part of the German army's Atlantic Wall defence. In Hirtshals, you can freely walk through the excavated bunkers. There is a tour at 2:00,but it was only in Danish, so we used the English pamphlet and walked through on our own. Kids thought it was... 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
