Aggregate bunker

The German troops occupying Schiermonnikoog during WWII totalled some 600 men. They built bunkers in the dunes along the beach as part of the Atlantic Wall to defend against allied forces. There was even a whole village at the end of the Prins Bernhardweg, consisting of bunkers, radar installations, anti-aircraft batteries and camouflaged barracks.

This generator bunker provided electricity during power failures. The museum was able to procure a generator of the same type as was originally used in WWII. The bunker is otherwise fully equipped.

Please note that access to the bunker is via a steep stairway downward.
