Lenco van der Weel (1950), retired army officer, and Arthur van Beveren (1986), freelance journalist, have a long time passion for fortifications and German bunkers in particular. In 2001 they decided to join forces and combine their two websites into the biggest website about German bunkers on the internet. The new website both has the field guide style of lcbunkers.com and the encyclopedia style of AvB's Bunkersite. To please a wide variety of visitors the website is in the English language only. We would like to thank our bunker team members for their help on various trips in the last years.
Arthur is available for battle field tours along the Atlantikwall both in the Netherlands and in other European countries. He can also help you at an editorial level with your media production. He featured in a National Geographic series about German World War Two fortifications.
"Atlantikwall locations" will give you a geographical overview of our information on the Atlantikwall.
"Other locations" covers the sidesteps to fortifications outside the Atlantikwall (i.e. Westwall, Südwall, Führerhauptquartier and non-bunker sites).
The "Armour & Armament" part presents an overview of the steel parts used in the bunkers, an overview of remaining German cupolas in Europe and information about the re-use of warship guns in the wall.
"Bunkeroptik" is the atlas on the internet about optics used inside or around German bunkers.
On the "Updates" page we will inform you on any updates on the website.
You can also search the site for certain locations or typenumbers of bunkers and armoured parts.
If you have any further questions or comments mail one of us by clicking on the names in the upper-right corner.
In the About section you can find a typology with a list of all Regelbauten and some standard Vf-types used in the Atlantikwall. "Sources" contains a vast bibliography. "Links" leads to Bunkerart which holds a vast list of websites on the subject. A log of our bunkertrips can be found at "Teams".
Both "Locations" sections present overviews of main areas in Europe. Clicking a link brings you to a menu on the left. Depending on the amount of pictures or locations, this menu has one or more submenus.
We use the native names of the geographical designations of towns, countries and regions. (i.e. Flushing is called Vlissingen). The description of the German bunkers is according to the publications of the author and specialist Rudi Rolf. (see the chapter "Sources")
