It looks the same as when I first saw it.

But in 1961 it was the right side I saw which had obviously been the target of American tank guns, arriving in town, which only dented it.

Worth a Visit When it is open

This Bunker is privately owned. The plan is to create an apartment on the top floor and to break through the bomb-proof roof to use the space for a sun porch. It is easy to think of a thousand reasons why this is a bad idea, but... You have to be full of fantasy to conceive of such an idea. Since the owners conduct the tour, they combine a slight awkwardness with a thorough knowledge of the entire bunker system in the city and a love for this monster of a building. Plus each has a twinkle in the eye and a subtle sense of humor.
You will be amazed at how carefully thought out these bunkers were. How packed they were during raids and how the human needs of the occupants were cared for.
So why only four points? Well, it is not the Parthenon or the Sphinx. What it is a great way to understand how Schweinfurt survived repeated poundings and kept up its industrial production during the Second World War.
The bunker can induce claustrophobia if you have never been a spelunker, submariner or tank crewman.
Check the website to see when it is open for tours. I have been to the city for over 40 years and this was the first opportunity I had to see it.

Excellent guided tour (by the private owner of the bunker), giving an impression of a time nobody would like to experience again
