Uncovered: Hitler’s Secret Bunker in France

  • Hitler's Bunker

Finding a Way In

After the photographer located the bunker, he had to figure out how to get in. The windows and doors were covered with old and rusty shutters and the entrance was complicated as well. Most of the entrances were designed to keep intruders out, which made it challenging for Askat to find a way in. Finally, the explorer found an opening and was able to get inside.

Keep in mind that Hitler’s army had constructed other hidden bunkers in France. Many ruins of Nazi bunkers  still exist in northern France, including a bunker known as Batterie Todt which is located near Normandy. The Nazis occupied France for several years during World War II, and Paris was liberated in 1944.
