Field command site Hochwald - Schwarzschanze

A number of big bunkers were constructed and the area was of course heavily protected with minefields, barbed wire and foxholes.

Hochwald was abandoned in early 1945 and most buildings and bunkers blown up. The Germans were on the defensive and everything was rapidly moved westward, not to fall into the hands of the advancing Russians.

Today one can visit the area and the best preserved bunker is the one that was built for Heinrich Himmler.
