Who knew the West German government kept billions of Deutsch Marks hidden away during the Cold War in case Soviet bloc countries released counterfeit currency? The amazing story is well preserved in this fascinating bunker. Michael, our English speaking guide, was magnificent.

Interesting place to visit, we did not book and had no cash on us at the time of visiting, had to walk quite far to pick up cash to enter. also tours run in German so best to call first if wanted an English version.

Thanks for your recommendation. If you wish to follow a guided tour in English, please make reservations in advance. The Bundesbank-Bunker is still secret - many people have yet to discover this unique place. We are looking forward to your visit. Kind regards from Cochem.
