European Bunker Day
European Bunker Day is the central event of Atlantikwall Europe. Based on Bunker Day in the Netherlands the seven Atlantic Wall countries will organise each May or June their own version of European Bunker Day.
As part of the network activities, three familiarisation visits were organized in 2019 and 2020. During these visits, an AWE delegation consisting of members of the steering committee and those directly involved became acquainted with board members and volunteers from organizations that manage Atlantic Wall sites or related war museums.
