The first bunker we find in De Punt is an observation bunker, also called a Leiche MG Ringstände bunker. This reinforced concrete battle area has a round or octagonal hole at the top includinh a gun carriage. A gun carriage is a base for a machine gun, used to defend the complex. The bunker has a wall thickness of 75 cm.
Next to the function of defense, the Ringstände was also used as an observation post. The bunker was usually occupied by one person. Above the entrance of this bunker you can discover a dot, this is a so-called marking dot. Many bunkers have such a dot, these dots marked the entrances so that they were easy to find in the dark. The paint used contains a radioactive substance (Radium) and made the marking dot glow in the dark. This radioactive substance is not working anymore.
