Barracks bunker 622

This bunker, in contrast to the other barracks bunkers in these dunes, is still completely undamaged and intact, perhaps due to it being partly buried under the sand during the fighting on November 1st 1944. The original bunker number can still be clearly seen by the entrance. Although it was against fire regulations, the ceiling inside is made of wood because no metal was available to build with at the time.

Another significant thing about this bunker is the plum tree near the entrance. It was planted by a German soldier and produces bags full of plums each year.

There is no lighting inside the bunker so make sure to bring a torch!
