Dobbiaco Bunker Museum

A very special experience awaits you in a bunker near Dobbiaco in the upper Val Pusteria valley, which dates back to the Cold War.

Already at the time of WWII, the construction of a fortress was begun between Dobbiaco (Toblach) and San Candido (Innichen), which lasted until the 90s and was used by the NATO at the time of the Cold War. It was part of the so-called Alpine Wall, an Italian system of fortifications to secure the 1,851 km long northern frontier. Today, this 200 sqm complex is a unique museum course that can be visited, the Dobbiaco Bunker Museum - “Bunker Museum Toblach” in German.

Besides information on the building of the bunker and its protective function there are also pictures of the former occupation as well as military exhibits and the cellar vaults themselves to be seen. Radio systems and field telephones, food rations and weapons provide insight into another reality - here, under the earth of the upper Val Pusteria valley, surrounded by 3,600 cbm of concrete and steel. By the way: due to its immediate proximity to the border, the upper Val Pusteria valley has a total of about 50 bunkers belonging to the Italian army.

Another Bunker Museum can be found in Merano and surroundings, more precisely on the Passo delle Palade mountain pass. There’s the Gampen Bunker with its Gampen Gallery. And how to reach the Dobbiaco Bunker Museum? It is located between the villages of Dobbiaco and San Candido, where on the left (coming from Dobbiaco) a small road branches off to the bunker.
