Your next summer getaway: An East German bunker

For those who want a more immersive overnight stay…

East German bunker

Where are you going for your summer vacation? Oh, the beach? That's nice, but the more intrepid traveler can head for a historical "reality experience" in an East German bunker.

Set in the town of Rennsteighoehe, the "Bunker-Museum" was originally built in the 1970s as a shelter for the district's command unit in case of an emergency. Today, the 38,750-square-foot bunker offers visitors the option of donning National People's Army uniforms and spending the night as East German soldiers — for only 109 euros ($150 USD) a head.

Take a vicarious look at this unique vacation through the fascinating photos, below.
