Artillery Fort 'Furggels'

This gigantic fortress was constructed from November 1939 to January 1945 to defend the area against a possible enemy invasion. The main armament consisted of four 10,5cm gun turrets of the type Turmkanone 39 and four 15cm guns. The complex can be described as a small village, as it consisted of a hospital, an emergency hospital, barracks, machine chamber and casemats. These defence works and facilities were connected by an underground tunnel system.

The fort can be visited these days.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
