Bunker Open Day @ various places at the seaside
Bunker Open Day @ Various Places at the seaside | Netherlands

The Hague is organising an open day for the city’s bunkers on Saturday, 25 May. Come and discover these fascinating concrete giants which are normally closed to the public. With 14 locations in The Hague.

The Hague and Scheveningen were literally turned into a fortress during the German occupation. The bunkers remain silent witnesses of this period. The construction of the Atlantic Wall coastal defence and fortification had other radical repercussions. Entire neighborhoods had to make way for an anti-tank ditch 8 km long and 300 meters wide. In addition 100,000 people were forced to leave their homes and find refuge elsewhere.

A day of activities
During the Bunker Open Day you will discover the stories of the German occupation and the destruction of The Hague and what it meant to live in a city at war.

Watch a re-enactment of the Able Compagnie or Company West, take a guided walking tour along the bunkers of the ‘Hauptkampflinie’ in Benoordenhout or visit Commandobunker V149 in the Belvédèrepark which will be excavated especially for this day.

More info
Bunker Day in The Hague is from 10.00 to 17.00 hrs. on Saturday, 25 May. An all-inclusive ticket costs € 6.00 for adults and € 3.00 for children 4 to 12 years old. Tickets can be purchased online until Monday, 20 May or at nearly every bunker on Bunker Open Day.

You are then entitled to the entrance to all the bunkers, guided tours and museums in the participating towns and cities along the North Sea coast.
