Dear Outdoor friends,

this tour will give us the opportunity to visit some of the remaining German bunkers near The Hague, which were built between Protected content Protected content part of the Atlantik Wall.

The museum comprises several complexes of which these can be visited:
(1) Widerstandsnest 318; opening hours 11: Protected content
(2) Widerstandsnest 67 HL; opening hours 11: Protected content
(3) Scheinflughafen Ockenburg; The opening hours are not known yet at the time of writing, therefore we'll only visit Protected content (2).

Here is some detailed information about the three sites to have a clearer picture what these complexes were used for:
(1) Widerstandsnest 318
For details: Protected content

(2) Widerstandsnest 67 HL
For details: Protected content

(3) Scheinflughafen Ockenburg
For details: Protected content

How to get to the Protected content ;
Accessible by tram line 9 from The Hague CS, Protected content . A car is free to park within walking distance.

After having visited (1), we'll visit the Protected content 67 HL, which is in Kijkduin.
We'll get there from Protected content two bus lines, first 21 and depending on the schedule either 23, 24, or 26. We'll get off at the stop "Kijkduin Strand" which is in front of the Atlantic Hotel. A car is free to park within walking distance.

Next, to the NH Atlantic Hotel we enter a dune path, from there, it is a five-minute walk to the corridors.

In a nutshell, the rough schedule looks like this:
11: Protected content visit (1)
13: Protected content travel from Protected content (2)
14: Protected content visit (2)

After the tour, we can return with several bus or tram lines which leave very frequently from Kijkduin to e.g. The Hague CS, which takes approx. 40 minutes.

I propose to go for a drink or maybe even dinner at Kijduin, for those who would like to join are very welcome.

One more thing, have a look at these comparison pictures of The Hague as it is now and what it looked like during the 2nd world war (there are 6 pages):

See you then!

Cheers,
