European Bunker Day
Bunkers are unique witnesses. They tell us more about the war, the coastal defence, and the everyday life of the German soldier. European Bunker Day brings these stories to life. The intention is to open as many bunkers as possible in all countries with remnants of the former Atlantikwall. This is part of the European ‘Atlantikwall Europe’ Creative Europe Project.
Bunker Day is a major success in the Netherlands, where the seventh edition will take place this year. Belgium has participated in Bunker Day since 2017. Every year, an increasing number of visitors are fascinated by the concrete constructions from the Second World War.
This is a unique opportunity to visit bunkers that normally are closed to the public. This initiative will provide us at Raversyde Atlantikwall with the opportunity to put other, sometimes forgotten, gems in the spotlight as well.
More information on the participating locations will follow.
Free Entrance, open from 10am till 6pm.
