The Hague Bunker Day

May 28th 2022

Often inconspicuously hidden in the landscape, the Dutch coast is still full of bunkers from the Second World War. Saturday 28 May is Bunker Day. Between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., the bunkers of the Atlantic Wall from Zeeland to the Wadden Islands will be jointly opened to the public. The concrete colossi often have limited access. Sometimes sunk in the sand or taken over by nature, they still tell the story of the German occupation. During guided tours, walks and short lectures, the visitor discovers how soldiers lived in the bunkers and what influence the Atlantic Wall had on the many coastal inhabitants.
