FOR THE MOMENT, THIS SITE WILL BE ONLINE FROM 08.00 TIL 00.00

Welcome on the website about the Atlantikwall.

There are many websites with this topic, however not one of them is complete. Most of the sites are about a certain part of the Atlantikwall but only a few will have more information.

We are a group of hobbyists with a great interest in WW2 and the Atlantikwall in particular. Our goal is to create a site with as much relevant information as possible about the entire Atlantikwall! We start at Finland and then going down to the ending point in France. The site is regularly updated as new information is available.

So it can happen parts are missing or are skipped. Do you want to participate in the construction, or did you miss information ? dont hesitate to email this via our contact form!

The Atlantikwall

The Atlantic wall runs from France to Norway. In between this line of Defense by Denmark, ran in Germany, Belgium and Netherlands. This defense is never entirely phased out consisted mostly of bunkers, minefields, cannons. Pretty much bunkers have been preserved, some in very poor state, while there are some in the original state restored and often serve as museums. These fortifications were established at strategic points, and were not as the name suggests, a contiguous wall.

Between the coastal batteries and barricades were built by mostly surveillance and defensive posts equipped with mortars, heavy machine guns, and/or air defences. The roadblocks often existed from barbed wire, dragons teeth, tank moats and minefields.

After the invasion in Normandy, they stopped the construction. At that time 10.273 bunkers were finished and 799 under construction.
