Guided tour:


Surviving World War 3?

5 minutes to get into the nuclear bunker - and then? The perspective after two weeks? Out into a destroyed, irradiated world.

The Cold War threatens the world. The western powers form an alliance against the eastern bloc. An arms race between the major powers begins on both sides. The US and the Soviet Union had enough atomic bombs to wipe out humanity multiple times. Who can threaten whom and thus gain supremacy? Both sides also stockpiled biological weapons and poison gas bombs. The impending danger prompted the federal government to build so-called ABC bunkers. In Nuremberg there are still original nuclear bunkers under the main train station and in Krebsgasse. In both bunkers guided tours are offered by our association. These facilities are intended to provide protection against nuclear, biological and chemical warfare agents for two weeks.

The Krebsgassenbunker has its access via Krebsgasse in the city center. The two-story bunker lies below the houses standing there and, with its original furnishings, bears witness to a time of uncertainty and fear of nuclear war. During the tour you will learn how life in the bunker should be organized – lying down for 8 hours, sitting for 16 hours and that with 2,000 people seeking protection. You can look at the sanitary facilities and the kitchen and our tour guide will tell you about the political crises of the time and give an insight into the technical equipment of the bunker.
