The Pirmasens Loop: Bunkers
The entrance to Gerstfeldhohe The Thaleischweiler bunker
What is there to see?  A museum inside the tunnels of a large bunker, and a sealed bunker entrance.

How Long Does it Take? Driving time to Gerstfelhohe is about thirty minutes, with an hour or two inside the museum.  The Thaleischweiler bunker is  about a ten minute detour off the same route; exploring the outside of the bunker area takes less than thirty minutes depending on your interest. Combining the two sites make a nice weekend afternoon trip close to home. The popular Hitscherhof farm B&B is over the hill from the Thaleischweiler bunker.

Food and Services: No food service is available at the museum. The museum has a restroom.

What else do I need to know? Gerstfeldhohe is open only on weekends from April to October or by appointment. Don't forget a jacket because the inside temp is 55 degrees year round!  A visit to both the Gerstfeldhohe and Bad Bergzabern museums is interesting as the bunkers are completely different in design and function.
