The Oddesund Fortress (Oddesund-fæstningen)

The bridge across Oddesund was inaugurated May 15 1938. The bridge's tremendous importance for the German occupiers during 2WW is clear. Therefore they built a fort - "Stützpunkt Oddesund". The dilapidated remnants can still be seen north and south of the bridge and tells a little corner of world history. In it's decay, and despite the historic gloomy purpose, parts of the grotesque construction is due to the ravages of time...now rather beautiful in itself! Take a stroll when you pass by!

St = Ständige Anlagen. This mark at the entrance of a L410A-bunker at Oddesund Nord shows that it has a certain strength ("Ausbaustärke") - a perseverance to fire. The walls, roof and flor is more than 2 metres thick. The heigth inside is 2,2 metres as another "St-standard". The total mass of concrete to a L410A marked St is 885 cubic metres. No wonder that Danish Engineer Troops as late as 1970 gave up removing the bunkers after hard work blowing up only 4 bunkers at the site!
