Zandvoort's Bunkers

Anyone who knows Zandvoort well will know a little Zandvoort history.

From its early days as a fishing village to its 'glory' days as a resort favoured by Europe's aristocracy through to the darker days of occupation in WWII and then its resurgence as a modern day coastal resort capable of drawing tens of thousands of people in on a sunny day. Zandvoort has seen a lot.

Amongst the tangible remnants of its history are the bunkers (or remains of them) from WWII. Still the subject of research and study today, much has been written about Zandvoort's concrete bunkers.

We referred to the remains of one of them in a recent post called Interesting Things On The Way To The Beach.

Here is a photo of one of the Zandvoort bunkers which we took last summer.
