Hürtgenwald Restored First Aid Bunker

Hürtgenwald Restored First Aid Bunker

Exploring an amazing former German army first aid bunker in Simonskall, Hürtgenwald.

Volunteers have painstakingly restored the interior, and it is now in almost pristine condition, as it was in late 1944 before the battle of the Hürtgenwald began.

You can visit this bunker too; it is open every first Sunday of the month from March to November from 12:00 to 16:00. Address: Simonskall 17, Simonskall, Germany.

My name is Joris Nieuwint and I will be your tour guide! Please allow me to introduce myself and tell you a little bit about what I've been doing over the past years. For the past 10 years I've been living in Veghel, and before that, I've lived in Arnhem for almost two decades. Living so close to the battlefields meant that Operation Market Garden always had my interest and I've been studying the battles for all those years. Sharing what I've learned over the years has been my passion and becoming a tour guide was one of my dreams. Keeping the sacrifices of these men alive by telling their stories and showing the locations where it happened is my greatest passion.
