Westwall Museum Association HGS Gerstfeldhöhe e.V.
In 1938, the construction of the Gerstfeldhöhe fortress, the largest of the 11 Type A works between Aachen and the Weißenburger Senke, began.

A total of 14 km of tunnel passages (including machine halls, a military hospital, barracks for 800 men, narrow-gauge train stations, ammunition depots) were planned.

In the summer of 1940, work was stopped in favor of the Atlantic Wall construction.

By then, 3 work groups with 10 combat stands, 4 observers and the Obersimten Type B Bunker had been completed, and approx. 5 km of tunnel passages (remaining in 2006) had been driven.
