Hanstholm fortress Denmark

The Atlantic Wall was built as a defence line stretching from Norway to the south of France. The numbers of bunkers seems to be unknown, some references says 11.500 others claim 14.000

One claims that only in Denmark alone 7000 bunkers was built,

The largest in North Europe was the Hanstholm fortress. Denmark was considered one of the possible sites for an invasion by the Germans but was actually never a consideration for the allied.

The fact is that the number of German troops in Denmark at the time of the Invasion was 222.000 which was about twice what they had in Normandy.
