Published May 03 2021 at 9:30 PM GMT
  • The H'ckerlinienweg is two things: an interesting walk of approximately one hour through nice landscapes and weird anti-tank barriers, but also a close-up view of"Germany's dark history.
  • Walking through the moss-covered barriers in the woods is a special experience.
  • You can feel how soldiers were supposed to hide behind the lines, wait for attacks from France.
  • The barriers are all in good condition and even some bunker ruins are accessible along the hike.
  • The H'ckerlinie was originally part of the so called Westwall, a defense line between Germany and France.
