A massive building building project that was never used. There is an interesting self guided tour. Well worth a visit from Bremen if you have around 4 hours to spare. It is free!

It is the size of the bunker that get you. Of course the history of how it was built is awful, but nothing new. There is a self guided tour around and inside the building, including a small museum. It is a giant of engineering,...More

A bit complicated to go there, you must take a train and then a bus (count at least 45min from the main station). Check on the website the timetable because it's not always open. The visit is very interesting. You learn a lot about the...More

One hour would be the absolute minimum. I spend over four as a history nut...So anything in between would be fine. Enjoy!
