Both accessible PzKpfw 38(t) turrets at Stavanger (Forus Zitadel) are gone. You can still see one of them at Google Street View ...

We have found only the last turret at kindergarten - not accessible and only partially visible.

An update on the Danish destruction programme:
According to the material released by the Danish Coastal Authority, 122 bunkers will be demolished in the coming weeks and months. The programme includes
  • 1x L 410,
  • 1x L 411,
  • 1x 621,
  • 1x 676,
  • 5x 680,
  • at least 62 F-Stände (small machine gun bunkers) and
  • at least 25 Ringstände (types 58c and 67, one 65a).
I'm not entirely sure about the L 411 and 621, because those two are still in decent condition.
Only the locations of the bunkers have been published, not the types - I worked those out on my own.
Nevertheless, the list should be fairly accurate.

It's the one near Husby.
Admittedly, it's in pretty bad shape. But I think the Kugelkopf is still there.

Hi Torsten

Very nice list you have made, but quite sad! The government and local municipalities have done a lousy job in their removal preparations! Many of the "dangerous" constructions are far from dangerous compared to the partly submerged F-gruppen that has not been deemed necessary to demolish in some places.
Next year they can start all over again as the coast line moves, and F-Stände, Tobruks, IS-debris ect. becomes visible once again!! Waste of money in my opinion, and sad for the entity and historical wholeness of the beaches from Thyborøn-Søndervig! A very unique coastline, even though some bunkers present kind of a danger, but so does a lot of other stuff in our daily life!!
Walked from Nørre Fjand to Vedersø klit a couple of days ago, to make a final documentation of this area! The Kugelkopf of the 770P4 is indeed intact, but not in the best shape. However this one is the only remaining 770P7 with the Kugelkopf still intact in her in DK as it is right now!
:(

Hi Tønnes, thanks for the picture!

I did the same thing two weeks ago! Nice area with all the Pak-casemates and IS-bunkers. :cry:

The selection seems indeed arbitrary in some cases. For example the slightly damaged L 410 and L 411 at Thyborøn are marked for destruction, but not the heavily damaged F-Stände, 58c and Siegfried on the same beach. Also in several cases the two F-Stände of one F-group are marked, but not the submerged Ringstand in the middle, which is the most dangerous component for swimmers.

Hello colleagues,

what will happen (did happen) with the armored parts of bunkers (like turrets, loopholes)? Is there any possibility to transport it back to the Czech Republic?

Thanks
Regards
Jiri

Think it's cheaper to build a new one from scratch than transporting this one back to the Czech republic and renovating it.

Do you know where the Festungspak went, which was in a 612 near Lorient?

No plans to preserve the Sharte as it is right now! Demolition of this specific bunker has not started yet by the way.

I hope there're still some remains left in the third week of September, I'm coming to Denmark.
