Cold War Relic

Out in the far west of Schwabing lies a deserted emergency shelter that once held the prospects of supporting more than 3000 people in the event of an atomic bomb. The shelter, located at Heßstraße 120, once provided a 12,000 square meter living space far underground. It was maintained until about 10 years ago until it was converted to office space for the Emergency Disaster Response center. Now, after being unused recently, the current plan is to leverage the space for the fire brigade, and develop with integrated directing center. Thank goodness we don’t have use for these relics any more.
