Spetsbunkern at Kockums wharf

Boring Postcards


I passed the old wharf area where Kockums used to build boats and took the opportunity to take a picture of a peculiar tower that was buildt as a bomb shelter probably at the beginning of the war in 1940. I never knew of its existence until a few years back when I saw a glimpse when I passed. It is the only one in Sweden and was built by the wharf but couldn´t in any way harbour all the workers on Kockums as only 100 person could go inside. The design is german and is called ” Spitzbunker” or “Winkeltürme” after is designer Leo Winkel. It is situated by the oldest dock in Malmö, built on landfill in 1857.
