Stützpunkt XIX - Fortress Hoek van Holland

This is the Stützpunkt XIX, the command HQ of Fortress Hoek van Holland, located in the Staelduinse Forrest.

The bunker village consisted of 16 heavy bunkers, surrounded by a couple of small ammunition bunkers and staff facilities. The remaining bunkers nowadays are closed off, as they serve as a bat refuge.
