REGAN Vest - The Cold War Museum
Visit the REGAN Vest bunker complex, concealed 60 meters underground in a chalk hill, and constructed secretly in the 1960s. It was designed to accommodate the government, officials, and the reigning monarch in the event of a nuclear war.
Visit the impressive Cold War museum REGAN Vest, hidden in Rold Forest. Here, you can gain insight into a time that doesn't seem so distant today. The REGAN Vest bunker was built when there were fears of the horrors of the Cold War and the possibility of it escalating into a full-scale nuclear war.
Visiting the Cold War museum REGAN Vest is an exciting experience. In addition to the bunker, it includes the chief engineer's residence, which concealed the entrance to the bunker, as well as a welcome and exhibition building with a café and displays that tell the story of Denmark during the Cold War.
In the 1960s, the bunker was secretly built 60 meters underground inside a chalk hill and hidden behind a yellow brick villa. The bunker is nuclear-proof and well-concealed in Rold Forest, strategically located far away from cities and densely populated areas. The bunker's circular underground passages, covering an impressive area of 5,500 square meters, can accommodate 350 people.
It wasn't until 2012 that the bunker was taken out of service, and until then, its existence was actually a well-preserved secret, known only to a select few. In 2014, the facility was listed as a protected site, and efforts began to open this impressive cultural heritage to the public—now widely recognized as the Cold War Museum REGAN Vest.
