Declared a historical monument in 2003, the secretive bunker was utilized as the main headquarters for East Germany’s National Defense Council prior to the fall of the Berlin Wall.

With the ability to withstand chemical, biological and nuclear attacks, the underground facility was formerly kitted out with decontamination chambers, a control center and a self-sufficient power supply.
