A secret bunker, thought to be the largest weapons facility in the third reich, has been discovered by a filmmaker near the town of St Georgen an der Gusen. The bunker was thought to be a facility used for the development of nuclear weapons, and it is thought to be connected to the underground Bergkristall factory, where the Messerschmitt Me 262 was built. Andreas Sulzer, the filmmaker, found the bunker after poring over period documents and intelligence reports.

I personally think this is an exciting discovery, and i hope more comes of it. Further information can be found below.




A network of underground tunnels and bunkers used by the Nazis to develop an atomic bomb has been discovered in Austria by a filmmaker.

The complex was discovered just outside the small town of St Georgen an der Gusen, near Linz. Its exact location was determined using intelligence reports and radiation tests, which revealed higher than normal levels of radioactivity.

Andreas Sulzer, the filmmaker who is leading the exploration, discovered a critical 1944 report by the forerunner to the CIA, from an American spy who noted the existence of a secret weapons programme in the area.

The facility was built using slave labour from a nearby concentration camp, Mauthausen-Gusen.

Covering up to 75 acres, the vast site was believed to be connected to the underground Bergkristall factory, where the Messerschmitt Me 262, the first jet-powered fighter plane, was built.

Following the war, the factory was inspected by the Allies, but they never uncovered the well-hidden, secret complex.

eerie and beautiful
I always love these kind of discoveries, makes me feel like there is an entire new world just under our feet, so much history and knowledge just sitting quietly, waiting for someone to bring it all to light, and us just walking above it, listening to music, complaining about the weather, completely oblivious.

Be interesting place to visit and take a look around the bunkers .. wonder if they had any equipment and lab notes left inside ..

Interesting discovery! Hopefully its not chalked full of concentration camp inmate bodies. Those Nazi bastards made a habit of burying the evidence of there horrendous atrocities in mass graves. Just look at what they done at the Wenceslas Mines.

Hiya daas, I wonder if the story is a Christmas 'filler?' The place was uncovered a long while back. Even the video from the article was uploaded in 2012.



In the video, the tunnels are lit by electrical lighting which might mean it was already renovated and prepared for tourism in 2012? Worth checking the details to learn more.

ETA - Dope! Reread the article more carefully. The video isn't the newly discovered location...it's connected to it. I'm a big fan of urban exploration sites and reckon an unknown Nazi bunker would be Top 5 on anyone's list.

I had thought the same thing because I had watched that same YT clip awhile back ..I wonder what two cities the Nazi's would have dropped the bombs on if they had completed the project . a reply to: Kandinsky

Probably london and moscow had they developed it in time .. both capitols within their reach ..

Wow.... nice discovery!

How come it is completely empty though? Was it abandoned in the foreknowledge that the war was lost to the allies?

I am surprised they have not overflown all of WW2 Germany with those ground penetrating Radar planes they use to detect North Korean Tunnels. Those things go deep, deeper than you would suspect. There is no telling what we could discover there in buried technology. Egypt should be mapped with these planes as well. Could find all tombs and buried ruins.

Makes you wonder the reasoning behind the choices the US made . a reply to: Expat888

I am not too sure if that technology really exist or how good it might work . Remember that Israel was surprised at the tunnel systems they found in Gaza with their last incursions . a reply to: Xeven

I wonder how many bunker's remained hidden and were used by werewolf and perhaps the nazi sympethizers that lingered and still do in some area's to this day.

Very interesting and I am certain there are forgotten underground storehouses and caches left over from the second world war.

I don't think they would have had capable aircraft for the delivery of the payload that late in the war had they succeeded in making the bomb.

Probably because it was never finished. Underground facilities became the rule near the end. Massive bombing tends to promote that.

V2 missile factories moved under ground, stolen art and gold in salt mines, the Fuhrer bunker, all a desperate attempt by an Empire in it's death throws to protect its leaders, wealth and most advanced weapons systems.

To the last I grapple with thee…

I suspect you wouldn't be allowed anywhere near the site unless you were fully NBC'd up. It wouldn't even have to be anything radioactive to keep you out - it could simply be rotting remains buried underground for 70 odd years. That is the sort of combination that creates disgusting pathogens!

This was one of Speer's greatest masterstrokes and one of the reasons that many important military facilities are now located underground. Speer demonstrated that even Allied carpet bombing couldn't stop German mass production when it was moved underground - the only thing stopping it being a lack of materials.

I think a V3 rocket may have quickly appeared.

It would not have to be a ICBM it would only need medium range.

There was no such thing as guided weapons in WWII. Trying to hit London would have taken an aircraft.

Pretty amazing discovery and impressive bit of sleuthing on the discoverer's part. I would be interested to hear if they find a lot of art down there. There are so many still missing masterpieces from that time that it would be a virtual priceless mine of amazing pieces should any of them have been stored in this tunnel system.
