Westwall - Scheid


Share content:

The Westwall, with a total length of 630 km, is an extremely elaborate construction. The Westwall was built as a fortification and line of defense against enemy attacks from the west between 1936 and 1940.
The line here in Scheid belongs to the type "1938" and should stop up to 20 t heavy tanks. The Westwall consists of two concrete foundations running parallel to each other, on which cross foundations with 4 concrete bumps are mounted perpendicular to the enemy direction.
