East German NVA bunker open house

Post by housil » Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:43 am

Yesterday I did a trip to a two hrs far, former East German Army (NVA) "command bunker". It´s a Hotel nearby and you can rent their houses, former NVA officers Houses but also sleep, eat etc. in the bunker for a night with some "exercises" :D

I found a nice video about such an event:



See a highlight of yesterday :mrgreen:

Amazing place. I love that part of history. Guys in DDR and Soviet NBC suits should have weapons with them that image is really scary. I need to find myself some blumentarn stuff, in Russia I have seen gorka suits with that camo, pretty insane and interesting to see it in use after all that years and only in one place.

Have you watched Deutschland 83 tv show? If you did, any opinions?

That place is owned run by a "military historic club" and they keep it in shape. They dust and vacuum that bunker - serious!
