German concrete Air Raid Shelters ("Luftschutzbunker")

During the second world war, the Germans build a large number concrete Air Raid Shelters (or Luftschutzbunker" in German) to protect the civil population for the ever increasing Allied bombardments. Now, more that 50 years of the war, these Air Raid Shelter still define city views. On this page, some examples of still existing bunkers will be given.

This page contains a large number of pictures. It can take some time to download them.
