The Atlantik Wall In Normandy



Marine Hospital Map 1210E

In the centre of Cherbourg near the port is the old Marine Hospital. The German's took over the hospital during the occupation and built a SK fortified hospital bunker.

The hospital closed a few years ago and is now used as the French film university. When I walked round the site one Sunday it was completely deserted and although I did not find the SK hospital bunker which I believe in inside the main building, I did find what I believe to be a an air raid shelter. It was my first visit and the sheer size of the site is mind boggling.
