Atlantic Wall Museum The Hague

The German occupation built a command centre consisting of 13 bunkers in the New Scheveningen woods in 1943. The complex’s officers, lead by SS-Oberführer Erwin Tzschoppe, were tasked with the military defence of the Stützpunktgruppe Scheveningen. Whenever threatened by enemy forces, they could coordinate manoeuvres from the type 608 command bunker and surrounding villas at this location. Almost all the bunkers in the Scheveningen complex are still intact and the Atlantic Wall Museum The Hague Foundation has reopened and authentically refurnished the command bunker, the barracks bunker and the toilet bunker.

The command bunker was especially fortified, with walls of 3 metres thick reinforced concrete. The bunker today is equipped much as it was originally, giving visitors a unique and tangible experience of the past. There are also original historic German, British, Canadian and American military artefacts on show.

The personnel bunker type 622 (Doppelgruppenunterstand) is set up as an experience bunker in which films are shown.
