The Westwall, better known as Siegfried-line, was a defense-line that ran from Niederrhein to the Swiss border. The total length was 630 km, there were 17,800 bunkers and in 1940 there were 460 larger complexes build.

In 1995, a museum started in this bunker (No. 650). Here we get, because the bunker is brought back in original state again and is decorated with original gear from the Second World War, a very good picture of life in and around these bunkers.

Currently in 2017 the museum is closed, as the bunker is flooded.

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