On Saturday 3 June, many bunkers along the coast will be open between 10am and 5pm for Bunkerday. Naturally, our Cold War bunker will also be open on that day. It is a godsend to visit the (mostly German) bunkers that are usually inaccessible.

We will have a special treat that day. Radio amateur Hans van Hese, former marconist in the Royal Netherlands Navy, will come to demonstrate how to send Morse messages using a signal key. He will contact radio amateurs in other parts of the world.

Entry to the open bunkers is not free. If you want to make it a real bunker day, you need to buy a wristband at the first bunker you visit that gives access to all participating bunkers. Such a wristband costs €7.50, but children aged 4 to 12 pay €4. Children under 3 and veterans have free access – the latter group on presentation of the Veterans Pass. Please note that this Saturday the visitor centre is therefore not free to enter, but only with a wristband. If you start your Bunkerday with us, buy the wristband from us and thereby support the SHVV.
