The Bundeswehr Medical Store

This site built by the former East German army, the
NVA, in a mountain in the Harz area and used for ammo storage, 

and now in use by the Bundeswehr, has 7 km of tunnels and is 

now used as a store for NATO medical supplies. The NVA also tried to 

store missiles in it but they got them stuck in the tunnels

 and had a hell of a job getting them out again! There is also a 

command centre inside - a bunker in a bunker! It was visited with

 the permission of the Bundeswehr  during Mike Barton's 

German Bunker tour.
