During the winter months (November to April) are no tours available.
Guided tours in the museum
During every day that the museum is open you can get a guided tour from one of our enthusiastic volunteers. The guide takes you through the museum bunker and tells you all kinds of details about the bunker or interesting collection objects. Very fun and educational for children too!
A tour of the museum costs you nothing extra in addition to the entrance fee. Ask at the entrance for the possibilities. If possible, museum tours can also be provided in English or German.
Cycling and walking routes
Walking route 'Ommetje Vineta'
Along the way you will be informed by signs about historic Hoek van Holland and what remains of the First and Second World War can still be found in this area below and above the ground. Because Hoek van Holland is one of the few places in the Netherlands where remnants of the Cold War (including the Troposcatter) can also be seen, this route is highly recommended for both young and old.
Atlantikwall cycle route Hook of Holland (29 km)
Hoek van Holland was one of the best-defended areas along the coast during the war and if you pay close attention, you will still see many traces from the war in the landscape, such as anti-tank ditches, observation posts and bunkers that have been converted into homes. The new cycle route 'Cycling along traces of the Atlantikwall near Hoek van Holland' introduces you to Hoek van Holland's wartime past.
