Bunkertours

I have during the last 10 years done a few bunkertours as a leader for the trip. Both in Sweden and Europe and with focus on underground sites from the second world war and into the cold war.

Possible tours

Möjliga turer och guidningar

Femörefortet 5h tour

A detailed ”top to bottom” tour of the 7,5 cm battery from the 1960’s. We climb one of the turrets from the inside and explore 99% of all spaces within the fortress. The tour also visits two shelters outside and the measuring station that is not included on ordinary tours. Groups between 8-15 is prefered.

Femörefortet ”topp till botten” 5h

En mycket detaljerad genomgång av Femörefortet, Oxelösund som innehåller bla tre 7,5 cm kanoner från 1960-talet. Vi klättrar bla upp i ett av tornen innifrån och utforskar 99% av hela fortet på insidan. Guidningen innefattar också en vandring på ytan där två skyddsrum besöks och även mätstationen som inte ingår i den vanliga visningen av fortet. Grupper i storleken 8-15 personer rekommenderas.

Hemsö fortress

There are three major installations on Hemsö that is accassible for visitors. Storråberget with its three twin-barrel 15,2 cm guns, Havstoudd with three 7,5 cm guns and Kläffsön, a measuring station. Between 24 and 30 hours is spent on the island with overnight in one of the fortresses. Groups from 5 to 25 people.

Hemsö fästning

På Hemsön utanför Härnösand finns tre störra anläggningar som går att besöka. Storråberget med tre dubbelpjäser på vardera 15,2 cm, Havstoudd med tre 7,5 cm pjäser och Kläffsön, en modern mätstation. Mellan 24 och 30 timmar spenderas på ön, med övernattning i ett av batterierna. Grupper på mellan fem och 25 personer.

Oxelösund city and achipelago

Oxelösund should have been heavily defended during the cold war with men and guns. A walk through the city center with maps from the 1950’s and 1960’s tells the story on how these strongholds where supposed to be built. Out in the archipelago there are also remains both from the 2WW and cold war, some still possible to visit.

Oxelösunds centrum och skärgård

Citykärnan skulle ha varit kraftigt försvarat under början av kalla kriget med ett stort antal skansar. Med hjälp av kartor från 1950 och 1960-talen kan historien berättas hur dessa skansar skulle försvara staden. Runt om i skärgården finns ocskå lämningar, framförallt från andra världskriget och vissa är fortfarande möjliga att besöka.
