Festung IJmuiden - German Coastal Battery M.K.B. Wijk (W.N. 66)
This German coastal battery was one of the first coastal batteries of Festung IJmuiden built by the German marine. The battery consisted of four fun casemates of the type 671 S.K. and was part of W.N. 66. These gun casemates were guided by a M120 fire control bunker (picture 4,5). All bunkers of this battery are still in very good condition.
