Ostwall - Panzerwerk 694

This bunker of the German Festungsfront Oder-Warthe-Bogen
(Ostwall) was built between 1935 and 1936.

All of the Ostwall fortifications are connected by a 32 km long underground system of tunnels. On 28 January 1945 the red army launched an attack on the central part of the Ostwall. After 3 days of intense fightings the Russians managed a break through in the central and southern part.

The bunker today:
A group of Polish bunker fanatics are restoring the bunker since 2007. When Panzerwerk 694 will be opened to the public is unknown.
