This is one of those places that will stay in my memory for a long time. Well worth the visit. So now I’m just adding more words to make up 100 characters. Why TripAdvisor?

Bunkart is a fascinating place to visit. The bunker is an architectural feat and mixed with some cool art installations. One of the more unique museums around the world and especially good if you have an excellent guide like we had!
