The Tirpitz Bunker

The old Tirpitz Bunker looks like a colossus in the sand but is really just a small remnant of Hitler’s gigantic bunker project: the Atlantic Wall. Visitors enter the bunker through an underground exhibition tunnel from the new museum building. Take a good friend by the hand and explore the gloomy World War II bunker.
