Actually, we only wanted to hike a bit to Karkle, but suddenly we discovered a fortification on the beach from World War II. Unfortunately we were there on a Monday and sightseeing was only possible at the weekend.
It was the shore artillery battery "Memel-Nord"
A step on the fortifications and you could feel the cold atmosphere of the military conflict.
The exhibition in the bunkers of the Second World War is to show grenades, mine and bomb splinters as well as personal belongings of officers. All this gives the opportunity to touch the complicated history of everyday warfare.
