  • deep insight into the time of the cold war and a hopefully forever past time of atomic threat. Although I'm not sure whether this is true even in the July 2017

  • We got a very interesting guidance. THe guide was telling all kinds of stories. Bring a coat with you. Temperature inside is 12 - 14 degree.  more »
  • Absolutely worth visiting. Great to know the modern history at the time of cold war. A good insight into the emergency procedures of that time. Apart from that there is a good market in the near by town.
  • Fascinating place to visit. A little bit of history that was hidden for so long. Amazing that 200 places were reserved for West Germany's elite to sit out a nuclear war. Straight out of Dr. Strangelove.
  • Tour is in German obviously but there is a English guide book you can ask for so you can follow along (just hand it back in, i think they only have a couple ;) ). Well worth a visit!!!
  • Learn how Germany's political elite would have survived nuclear destruction a couple of extra days before dying of hunger and thirst when the supplies would have run out. Very knowledgeable tour guides through the bunker with at least some of them having first hand experience from exercises.
  • Highly Recommended This 17,3 Km long Bunker (equipped & furnished with 936 Bedrooms & 897 Officerooms n supposed to fit 3000 pax) is worth visiting if you are keen on Germany's History after the World War II & Cold War. Its built in 1962 and operated between 1971-1997, which mean that the country had to maintaince it long after the German Reunification & Cold War. All the Billions of DM&Eur were spent (almost) for nothing. You'd find it out once you were there. You only have to do a 203 m walking but have to invest around 70-90 min for the guided tour. Strollers & Wheelchairs are wellcomed. Please have some light sweater or jacket on as its only 12°C inside the Bunker. The Staffs are very friendly and helpfull -also to the kids. For English Speaking Visitor, you need to book your tour in advance. Please notice that the Museum is closed from Nov to March.
