and the remains of this rare one today !
the "schartenfront" is blown out and earth is moved against this side, so no image possible.

1.st door = personell entrance, 2nd door = door for PAK (bricked up today), and the "Flankierende Anlage".

greetings

hello

i think for building purposoes. today you see sometimes the round shaped holes in the "Schartenfront" - closed with concrete.

Thanks for the answer. Do you know when the picture was taken? And when the bunker was constructed?
