Ostwall - Unfinished Panzerwerk A8 West
This bunker of the German Festungsfront Oder-Warthe-Bogen (Ostwall) is built between 1939 and 1940.
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:
Since the construction was never completed, only the foundation stands today. It is possible for visitors to reach the underground system of tunnels through A8 West.
