Dirk,
I don't say it can't be done.

But if there is no group to do all of this, you can not preserve a bunker !
Thanks,

Wim

Good evening everyone,

On Wednesday, I went to Oldenburg battery to visit the bunkers and to see how the place has changed since the works. Behind them, the place has totally changed : many ponds and vegetation have appeared. No more buildings, except the R 621. They made a little bridge to access to the stairs going up to the the roof of the Turm Ost. But in front of the Turmen, nothing has changed ! I am going to show you all this with some pictures... Many ones were taken on July 20th 2019 (you should guess the date with the weather...) :

Hello

Looks nice. They have respect for the location and the bunkers it seems.

It is also safe to visit now, and allowed to visit?

Regards

Ok, thanks for the info,
I guess that's sad.. but without a useful destination it's understandable the demolished it.

Gr, Tim

Hello everybody,

@Der Bunkermann : Yes, the place has been transformed in a protected area. They.couldn't leave the barracks, unfortunately...

@Moonraker : very nice picture ! What is "L'Étoile" (The Star in english) ? Maybe a part of the building site ?
