The Fortress Museum

We bring light to the underground – come and join us!
The Fortress shelters the officer’s mess with murals, a morgue, kitchen with dining-hall, a detention cell, and much more.
A small underground village is open for visitors! You can find out more about the Fortress Museum here.
