A visit to the old bunkers in Hirtshals is a good reminder of who the world was - and how long we have come since.

It is an amazing preserved bunker which gives an unique insight to what the germans were doing in WWII and how they were protecting the coastline against invation.

If you have forgotten what happen 70 years ago then this is good reminder.

The bunkers were very cool, and the lighthouse was beautiful. The standout for me however, was the trails between the bunkers and the amazing views they provided. Be sure you really take the time to walk around.

During the German occupation, they forced Denmark to pay for, and build these bunkers, as part of the German army's Atlantic Wall defence. In Hirtshals, you can freely walk through the excavated bunkers. There is a tour at 2:00,but it was only in Danish, so we used the English pamphlet and walked through on our own. Kids thought it was pretty cool (especially our boys). There is also a lighthouse on-site which gives a great view of the surrounding area, but not worth the admission we thought.

Compared to a lot of other WW2 museums, this is by far the most boring. Only one bunker is on display and really not much to see. Worth a 15 minutes visit if you're in Hirtshals anyway
