502 in Pisz gets his colors back

It’s been some time since I reported about the Masurische Grenzstellung and its bunkers. Stp Johannisburg around today’s Pisz lies nearby. Since several years the command bunker type 502 is being restored. In September last year it’s got his camouflage colors back in. Very nice work!

Bunker found in downtown Warsaw

Works in Warsaw found a German bunker in the center of the city during works on a tram line. According to the photos it looks like a regular Tobruk to me, but a curator at the Polish army museum talks about a ’10-foot (3-meter) deep bunker’. It wil be moved to the museum. However the […]

Save the bats, or the bunkers

The Oder-Warthe-Bogen linie in Poland. An historical monument but also an important environmental hideout. Thousands of bats survive in the endless underground tunnels. The combination of the two could work but there are compromises to be made. The region’s big income are tourists who visit it partly because of the bunkers there are. For example, […]

Ringstand 69 in Poland

The Ringstand type 69 for observer/machine gun and mortar is quite common in the Atlantikwall. In Poland however it is an interesting find.  Personally, I don’t know of any other place in Poland where you can find a Bauform 69. User Winnicki, on the Fortyfikacje Forum, found four examples near Płock in central Poland. They’re located in […]

Regelbau 502 opened to public in Pisz (Poland)

Earlier than planned, the Regelbau 502 of Stp Johannisburg (nowadays Pisz), is opened to the public. It’s the first bunker out of several which will be included in a bicycle tour in the future. In the beginning of this year the bunker was still covered with earth and litter but the historical group ‘Piska Pozycja Ryglowa’ […]

Bunkersite.com starts BunkerBlog

Every day I watch several forums from all over Europe to see what’s happening in the bunker community. It’s a time consuming business but well worth the time because without it I wouldn’t have known about restauration projects in Poland, demolitions in Norway, dug up bunkers in Holland or any other activity in Europe on the […]
