defense area Hansted

The last test firing was made the following August, whereupon the battery became operational. Besides four large pillboxes, a large number of other bunkers were constructed in Hantsholm for ammunition magazines, fire control, electrical power, local defense, sick quarters and of course flak (anti-aircraft) guns. The whole area around the gun battery was heavily defended with trenches, barbed wire and minefields.

Today, one of the massive gun bunkers is a museum.
