Uncertain future for Bunker ‘Anton’

A Westwall Regelbau 1 for a machine gun in Merzig (Saarland) will probably be demolished or covered in the near future. From 2005-2007 it was a small Westwall museum.

The bunker built in 1938 during the ‘Limes-Bauprogramm’ was completely renovated. Unfortunately a new road will cross the spot of the bunker and it had to be closed last december. Recently all internal fittings and armoured material were removed and stored for later use by the Westwall Interessen Gemeinschaft. The bunker was welded shut and works will begin somewhere in the future.
