The Atlantic Wall of Denmark (Part 2)

As promised, here are the next photos from my short trip to a part of the North Atlantic Wall in Denmark.
The coastal strip we visited had various types of bunkers:

Right on the coast are groups of bunkers with machine gun and small artillery fire, a little back is a bunch of crew bunkers as well as more artillery batteries and artillery observation posts.
On top of the highest dunes are the command bunkers of the FuMO 214, a radar called "Seeriese" ("Sea Giant") and of the big "Mammut"-Radar ("Mammoth") that were both used to detect and track allied bomber groups and to guide the German fighters.

    1. Um ganz ehrlich zu sein - ich habe LOST nicht ein einziges Mal gesehen.
      Aber ich danke Dir für das Kompliment :)

  3. Diese Bunker an der Küste haben eine ganz spezielle Atmosphäre finde ich!
    Ich kann sie gar nicht richtig in Worte fassen, aber eine ganz ganz eigene.
    Die hast Du in Deinen Fotos sehr gut rüber gebracht.

    Liebe Grüße
    Sonja
