Pompstationsweg 353, 2597 JV Den Haag, Nederland
Starting walk: Among the water tower, Pompstationsweg 353, Den Haag
How was drinking water produced and supplied during WWII? Extraction, at least, took place within German occupied territory. A short, unguided walk from the Scheveningen water tower down to the beach tells, aided by information panels along the route, the story of this period. The best view of the bunkers can be enjoyed from the top of the embankment.
Duration: approximately 30-45 minutes
Dunea produces and supplies clean and safe drinking water to some 1.3 million customers in the western part of the Zuid-Holland province. We welcome around 1 million recreational visitors each year to the area between Scheveningen and Katwijk. We care for our splendid natural reserves, while protecting water sources and have done so for over 145 years. We continuously research (new) possibilities for supplying drinking water and for nature conservation.

Nationaal Monument Oranjehotel
Het Oranjehotel was de bijnaam voor de Duitse gevangenis tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Ruim 25.000 mensen zaten hier tussen 1940 en 1945 opgesloten, vaak omdat ze in het verzet kwamen tegen de Duitse bezetter. Maar ook joden, communisten, Jehova's getuigen en anderen die de Duitse wetten hadden overtreden.
Almost all the bunkers in the Scheveningen complex are still intact and the Atlantic Wall Museum Scheveningen Foundation has reopened and authentically refurnished the command bunker, the barracks bunker and the toilet bunker.
