European Bunker Day

Atlantikwall Europe’s most important event is European Bunker Day. Based on the Dutch ‘Bunkerdag’, each of the seven Atlantic Wall countries will organise a national Bunker Day in May or June of 2019 and 2020 under the header: European Bunker Day. Following Belgium’s first Bunker Day in 2017, and Atlantikwall Europe’s tentative start with Bunker Days in other Atlantic Wall countries in 2018, the first official European Bunker Day will become fact in 2019. 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.

The definitive European Bunker Day programme will be issued in April 2019.
