Following the tracks of the occupation in Hanstholm

The unique open-air museum around Bunkermuseum Hanstholm and the museum bunker covers approx. 100,000 m2 and forms the western half of the German 38-cm battery.

The area around the bunker museum was a bare and harsh dune landscape, during the war. However, in the early 1950s the Danish state planted spruce to give the town of Hanstholm shelter from the harsh climate of the west coast. It has succeeded, so that today there is a beautiful and varied dune forest.

In the area you can see some of the various bunkers which are exposed in this part of the battery. The bunkers are open and it is allowed to enter them - however, bring a torch, as there is no light in the bunkers.
