When staying on holiday in Denmark i saw a large apprently abondoned military facility non the outskirts of the town of Nymindegab (pronounced Nu-min-de-gab).
There was a main rail line running straight into it, going across the road. Does anyone here know what it was for? All along the western coast of jutland were many pillboxes, obviously WW2, and many other fortifications and buildings. Does ayone have any nformation about any of these locations? BTW, there is a huge exercise ground near these places to.

BTW the large exercise ground is known as "Oksbl". A large area where the danish army use live ammo...

Tak windwalker. The base was definitely disused, as the railway line running into it is used for the famous 'Trolley Cycles' (in england we'd call them 'Railway bikes') which you can hire.

Is this related? Danish Home Guard Training School (scroll down)



. On the east coast are the VLTJ (Vemb-Lamvig-Thyborn Jernbane) - with some goods traffic remaining - and the VNJ (Varde-Nrre Nebel Jernbane or "Vestbanen"). This has a heavy, is irregular, goods traffic, mainly because it works two government (i.e. military) lines; an extension from Nrre Nebel to Nymindegab and a branch to Oksbl Syd.

I've been to Denmark a few times and seen bunkers near or on beaches. I asked a friend and she said they were defences from WWII.

I can guarantee the base is abandoned... I checked about the railways.. They were established in the 50's, and their purpose was to transport heavy artillery and armor. When the cold war ended, so did the railway along with a number bunkers and other military facilities along the coast and in southern Denmark.

Yes, the danish home guard use the westcoast alot, especially old bunkers, railways for training etc.

But it is for sure not a active part of the danish defence.

Thanks for the information windwalker. I read somewhere the railway line was built by the geramans in ww2 with pows for labour.
I know that in the cold war the two places expected to fall to a soviet attack were the northern and southern flanks of europe, the northern being Denmark, so thhe base was probably located because of that too.

BTW, you double posted.
