The area is riddled with German war bunkers, and this museum has opened up one of them and kitted it out to look authentic. The bunker rooms has text in Danish German and English, the ground floor display has no English text but the receptionist...More

The bunker is a must-see for all ages visiting the northern Jutland. We combined it with the classic danish movie "Olsen Banden i Jylland" which was a huge success for our kids (7 years old).

This was very interesting. Not only to see the bunger but also to learn about the everyday life in Hanstholm during the Second World War.

Travel to Europe always lends opportunities to see and understand the nightmare that was WW2. Denmarks experience of German occupation is highlighted in several exhibitions across the country. This preserved Bunker system is well done with examples of weapons of the axis. Staff are helpful...More
