Bayernwald is a unique reconstructed German site, consisting of two German mine tunnels, a mine shaft, and a system of trenches with five bunkers. The site can be reached through a pathway through the restored trenches. Information panels tell about events in the war and life at the front. The site is only accessible with a code, available from VVV Tourist Information in Heuvelland.
