Historic Art Bunker

Local nameHistorischer Kunstbunker
LocationNuremberg, Germany

The Historische Kunstbunker is a tunnel complex under Nuremberg Castle in the old city of Nuremberg. It forms part of the Nuremberg Historic Mile.

Even in the Middle Ages, a network of rock passages was built in the hard sandstone of the castle. In the summer of 1940 the stone cellar of 52 Obere Schmiedgasse street was renovated for the protection of Nuremberg's artworks from air raids. The Neutorturm was also used as an art bunker from 1941 and the Paniersbunker under Paniersplatz from 1943.

The construction regulated heating, ventilation, and drainage; the bunker extended 24 metres down and offered optimal conditions. There were also facilities for the guards. Contents included:
