(clicking the picture will give you the KMZ file)

At the Landfront Oostende, there's an interesing Luftschutz bunker along the railway and about 1 km North of the center of the village.
According to several sources many more were build.  If this is true then this is probably the last one existing.

The shape of the bunker resembles a pyramid.  This is to deflect bombs and prevent damage to the bunker and protecting the people who are hiding for bombing raids.
Today it is used by the NMBS, the Belgian state railway company.

Right; the door leading to the main room.

I am searching for these door type numbers, if someone knows, this would be a great help.

Going into the bunker ther's a small corridor with at the left hand side the main room.  At the other side there's the second entrance.

The main room.
