Unique within the New Dutch Waterline: spend the night in a “Bunker”, a shelter equipped for 4 people. This was built at the end of 1939 by the Dutch. It served as a shelter from enemy fire. These typical concrete colossi are also called capped pyramids. You can often find them along the New Dutch Waterline. It indicates the area where the land was inundated. They stand on stilts and the entrance usually has an elevation of 40 cm due to standing in the water.

This bunker served as a hiding place for the soldiers. It was made habitable a few years ago and the real enthusiasts can indulge themselves here.

Fairly basic, without heating and provide your own towels, bed linen and sleeping bags. Mattresses are present. Cooking utensils, plates and glasses are on the shelf. A small electric 2 burner, a mini fridge and a folding table should make your stay here the most beautiful experience.

In terms of furnishing, this bunker can be compared to a very small caravan. There are limited cooking facilities and a very small fridge. You can use the general toilet group in the Contrescarpe. There is also a room with shower and sink especially for the bunker residents and campers. These facilities can be reached via the poster.
