Bunkers in the dunes

The Oostduinpark was the site of the German Marine Seeziel-Batterie Scheveningen Nord: a bunker complex including around eighty buildings, ranging from an S414 fire control post to a kitchen, storerooms, latrines and a sauna. After the war the bunkers were cleared and either sealed off or buried under sand. Some were taken over by the Dutch army. They have proved to be an ideal habitat for bats, making them valuable for nature conservation as well as in terms of cultural heritage.
