Caption

The "Monument" you can see here meandering through the landscape is called the "Westwall" (also known as "Siegfried-Line"). It was meant to be a Border between the Third Reich and the Allied troups.


It is (or was) 630 km long and consisted of some 18.000 tunnels and bunkers. Built between 1938 and 1940.

(Personal note: as I had a both a HD-RAID crash and logical errors on my system I am happy to get something out at least. That weekend I did not spend as much time there as I had planned...)
