The Atlantic Wall museum

Tha Atlantic Wall

The Atlantic Wall was one of the last major defence lines of this century, built by German occupation forces in the period 1939-1944 along the coasts of France, Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and Norway. During this period more than 12.000 heavy concrete bunkers were built. The project underlines the Atlantic Wall’s architectural, aesthetic, and cultural landscape value as a transnational cultural heritage, preserving a shared memory on European soil an heritage to be safeguarded and protected through the creation of The Atlantic Wall Linear Museum.
