One of the most significant sites in the city during the Second World War, the Bunker Museum tells the fascinating story of how the conflict shaped Kaliningrad. Both a seat of German power and then later capitulation, the bunker was opened to the public in 1967 to share its historical significance.
Tourists wishing to explore the history of the Bunker Museum can stay at a centrally located hotel in Kaliningrad. The Radisson Hotel Kaliningrad is one of the city's finest hotels and offers visitors a range of 178 stylish and sumptuous rooms to choose from during their stay.
Exploring the Bunker Museum
The bunker itself was constructed in March 1945, shortly before the Battle of Königsberg took place. Acting as the headquarters for the Axis forces during the siege of the city, it was also the site where General Otto von Lasch signed the German surrender to the Soviet army following the four day battle.
The bunker was initially opened as part of the Kaliningrad Historical Museum and now explains the struggle for the city and its context in World War Two. The Soviet capture of the city had huge consequences for Kaliningrad, with it becoming part of Russia and receiving its current name following the death of Mikhail Kalinin in 1946.
