WN 165 Frundsberg – Pointe du Riden – Cap Gris Nez

WN 165 - Frundsberg on the Pointe du Riden, Cap Gris Nez.

Address:

Pointe du Riden
Cap Gris Nez region,
France

Accessible


If you are walking or hiking your way along this beautiful coastal trail then you can't miss this exquisite bunker located right on the cliffs edge. This bunker is not accessible to go inside but you can still walk around the back and sides. The front portion that faces the ocean is closed off as is the entry from the back end inside the bunker. If you are on your way to see the Tilly the Komandostand then you will pass this bunker first when taking the trail. Tilly is located to the east of Frunsdberg.

You will start your journey by doing one of two things, either driving or taking a bicycle. Either way take the D191 and take a left turn into the small village of Waringzelle, that road is called Rue du Cran aux Œufs and will take you to a dead end. To the right of that dead end is a small wooden trail fence, it's actually just a horizontal piece of wood but stands as a marker to the trail head. There really is no place to park, I had to turn around and park my car back at the hotel, I then rented a bicycle and rode down to the trail. If you do it this way be prepared to take your bike for a walk! The trail is up and down and uneven in places and it's not for the rental bikes in the area.

I used two different cameras on the 2016 visit. The Nikon Coolpix 35mm and the Apple iPhone Six S Plus.

What a beauty! isn't she lovely? Still affixing her gaze out to sea all these years later...


The entrance to the bunker has been locked.

The retaining wall or blast wall is still standing.

Pointing my camera inside we can see the newly laid concrete door blocking access to the front of the bunker.

The beautiful beveled layer of concrete makes this a really nice bunker.

A nice look aft of Frundsberg.
