Historisch-Literarischer Wanderweg

Back to article by category overview


The Multimedia-Historyguide is a Project of the Konejung-Stiftung: Kultur, that will bring the history in a new way. By interviews, pictures and films together with commentary of historians, archaeologies you will learn about the years 1937-1947. The names of the walking routes link to a flyer.

You can find audio files you can take with you during a walk but also videos with lots of historical footage. Below I have summarized the walking routes you can get from the site. There are six routes with audio/video, maps and flyers with extra information. I have linked information on this page to pages on my website for convenience. I have not walked any of these routes although I have visited some of these areas because of the bunkers that are in those areas. If you have any information about these routes please leave a comment.

This site does not target extreme right elements, only hobbyists with an interest in the westwall.
