My friend Elmar booked this amazing visit. We'd previously visited an air raid shelter/bunker in Hamburg in 2013, in his local district, to commemorate the Hamburg Firestorm, and this trip ventured 30km south of Bremen. I've visited all but one of the huge U-boat bunkers...More

A massive building building project that was never used. There is an interesting self guided tour. Well worth a visit from Bremen if you have around 4 hours to spare. It is free!

Worth a visit for anyone interested in WW2. the site is well preserved and the entrance and audio guide are both free. Personal stories from those that were interned and worked on the site provide a human context to the concrete structure. As other posters...More

The Valentin Subway Factory is excellent to visit when you're in Bremen. It's a little far outside the city, but it's worth the time and effort to get there. They have not done too much to change the bunker, and it's mainly in the condition...More

Takes more than an hour from the Bremen city center by train and bus. Probably will have to spend around 4-5 hours to visit. But still, it worths visiting. I would recommend this bunker more than any other places in Bremen. This overwhelming, colossal bunker...More

One hour would be the absolute minimum. I spend over four as a history nut...So anything in between would be fine. Enjoy!
