European Bunker Day

Bunkerdag is and will be part of European Bunker Day this year, next year and hopefully for many years to come. Based on the Dutch ‘Bunkerdag’, each of the seven Atlantic Wall countries will organise a national Bunker Day in May or June. Just as in the Netherlands, the aim of European Bunker Day is to open as many bunkers and bunker locations as possible once a year, and to bring the Atlantic Wall to the attention of a wide audience as an important part of Second World War heritage via educational and cultural activities, simultaneously demonstrating the significance of the Atlantic Wall for today's Europe.

European Bunker Day is the most important event of Atlantikwall Europe - a collaborative project in the context of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, supported by Creative Europe Culture (2014-2020), the European subsidy programme for the cultural sector.
