War Art

During the Second World War, the Hanstholm area were heavily fortified and you can find traces everywhere from the occupation (1940-1945). The Batteri of Vigsø, part of the fortifications, housed four 10.5 centimetre canons, an observations bunker for gunfire control, anti-aircraft defences, crew bunkers and machine-gun posts. Today some of the bunkers lie desolate on the beach, while others will soon be swallowed up by the North Sea. In the dunes behind the beach, you can still find defences like this, today it is a bit eerie walking in the old network of German trails.
