Bochumer Verein Bunker

This industrial bunker was built by Bochumer Verein to protect critical electrical installations from aerial bombardment. The conversion of underground spaces within the steelworks began in 1934, well ahead of time for World War Two. Most of the surface structures on this part of the site were razed long ago with what's left turned into a public park and performance space.
