Show all 3 images
Built in the early 1960s during the Cold War, the top-secret, well-hidden and rock-protected Alvaneu bunker served as the command centre of the «Border Brigade 12» and Mountain Division 12 and was the military centre at the strategic heart of the canton of Graubünden. Exhibitions and sights Access to the bunker is through a 180-metre-long gallery that serves as an exhibition room. Important stages of the explosive era during the Cold War with the Iron Curtain are shown there. In the bunker - buried 200 m deep in the rock, fully equipped, nuclear-safe and protected against the use of chemical weapons - you as a visitor will experience impressively how the command staff of up to 90 people could live and work completely autonomously for up to 60 days in those days, well protected. Thanks to a multimedia presentation and a simulation game with «augmented reality», interested visitors can gain exciting impressions of the threat situation in Graubünden at that time and develop military strategies themselves. The special exhibition «Civilian Telephony» shows how communication has developed from the early days to the present day - over 1400 exhibits of civilian telephony in Switzerland and around the world are on display in the former officers' wing.
Is obligatory, the guided tour takes place with a minimum of 4 people.
