An immense underground complex with barracks for 1200 soldiers, galeries and bunkers. We will learn al about the secret and innovative German plans for the attack of the fortress.

After that we will visit caves that also have been used during WWII. Caves where a great hiding place and shelter during the war for citizens and soldiers. Experience yourself how it must have been like t hide underground
