The US had basically the same thing in the basement of the Greenbrier Hotel in West Virginia.

Probably several other still in existence, but classified locations.

Well... an interesting insight but as the above poster stated, nothing mind blowing here.

Every NATO Member had some kind of "Doomsday" Bunker ready to be used by government officials at a moment's notice of Nuclear War.

But the German complex is staggering in that how elaborate and well-designed it was. It must have been absolutely state of the art back then.

"It must have been absolutely state of the art back then."

Unfortunately not. When you read the original articles (e.g. in the "Spiegel" magazine) you will soon find out that the bunker was too close to the earth´s surface. It would have only withstand a 20 kiloton bomb (there were 5 megatons bombs available already in those days). Costs summed up to 2.5 billion EUR (approx. a little more than 4 billion USD) in the 1960s. And even though architects and specialists in 1961 critizised the bunker as unsuited for a real nuclear-strike (s.a.), government officials sticked to the project which wasn´t finished before 1966. Well, at least we now know where our taxes went...
