Fort «Furggels» - Emergency Exit Waterfall

Franziska leads us to the exit Waterfall from the middle of the upper main access tunnel in order to close it. She's the youngest member (9) of the new crew of Fort Furggels and is already well versed in this underground maze. With this tunnel, the construction of the fortress was started in 1939. The whole outbreak was transported through this tunnel out of here and thrown into a hollow in the hillside. At this exit there is also one of three openings through which the gases of diesel engines in the machine room are routed to the outside. Because the lighting is not so well everywhere, she uses my new small LED flashlight with advanced technology. Military fortress «Furggels» above Pfäfers, St. Margrethenberg, Switzerland, Dec 5, 2010.
