This pillbox, No. 132, is located 20 meters west of the track opposite the bench. The type is Regelbau 10 mit Angehängte Kampfraum (with connected Fighting Room). 3471 of these were built on the Siegfried line, 491 in Nordrhein -Westfalen. Each had 2 rooms for 15 men.
All these bunkers were built as part of the Limes programme of 1938. In late 1944 and early 1945 they were manned by the remnants of the 272 Volks-Grenadierdivision. On 5 February 1945 they were finally taken by the 78 US Infantry Division.
They are closed to the public from 01 October to 31 March to allow bat colonies to flourish, so plan your visit for summer!
