Description

Anlage Mitte (central facility) is a World War II bunker built by the germans as a so-called Führerhauptquartier. It was intended to host Adolf Hitler if this should be necessary during the war. For this purpose the bunker had a strange bunker which is a straight and 350m long concrete vault, intended for the command train. Nearby are numerous other bunkers which host the machinery for electricity, fuel, and water.

The bunker was able to protect two of Hitlers private trains. It was built for Operation Barbarossa, the attack of the Soviet Union in June 1941. The bunker was never used for its intended purpose and at the end of the war it was used as ammunition depot.
