“De Bunker” is a real bunker

“De Bunker” is not a nickname, this holiday home is a real bunker, built during the Second World War. Bunkers were built along the European coast by the occupying forces, as the Germans feared an invasion over sea. These bunkers were part of the famous Atlantikwall. Our bunker is situated a bit more inland, on the outskirts of Julianadorp, near a canal and the railway line. This bunker was built in 1942 as part of an additional defensive wall south of Den Helder, so that it would also be able to withstand an attack over land.

In addition to the bunkers, a tank ditch and other barriers were built near Julianadorp. After the war, many bunkers fell into disrepair. Nevertheless, they are often still clearly visible in Den Helder and Julianadorp. You will find some in the immediate vicinity of holiday home “De Bunker”. There are numerous bunkers in the dunes that you can visit. Our bunker was used as a storage room for a long time, but has recently been completely restored and converted into a holiday home for six people. Holiday home “De Bunker” is now open to anyone who wants to spend their holiday with us. We welcome you!
