WN 21 H - Regelbau 617 Bunker Texla

This is the Texla bunkercomplex, the former German headquarters on Texel. Most of the complex, which counted 49 bunkers, was demolished shortly after the war. Only 2 bunkers remained. The complex witnessed heavy fighting during the Georgian Uprising of 1945.

The bunker was dug out in 2018 and is open to the public on special days.
