Given the name of the photo I'm thinking someone thought this might have been a Latrine of some sorts?

No sef-respecting mason would lay claim as that being a very poor attempt to build some sort of temporary restriction for foot traffic.clip that thing with the corner of a dolly or hand cart and something if not everything is going to crumble. Not very german, must be a Russian attempt.

I believe most bunkers had plumbing, including sewer disposal, it was just never completed in this particular fortification. Here are some stalls I found underneath Berlin http://opacity.us/image6895_funf_stufen.htm and the toilets were primitive, like this http://opacity.us/image4949_bathroom.htm

Okay..I have a strange question. When all the people were down here, hiding from the bombs, where did they go to the bathroom?

This was an amazing tour! How did I miss this one? I thought I've seen all the galleries to date. Thank you for sharing this remarkable adventure from history.

Thanks, although the bulky MagLites threw a nice warm beam, I've since switched to smaller, high power LED lights to cut down the weight of my bag. My top choice is a Fenix with rechargeable 18650 Li-ion batteries.

Not much of a smell, maybe a bit musty like a damp basement.

Nah, it would take a lot of rope and although the place is a bit maze-like, it's not very large.

The pipe came up a little under my knee, probably 2-3 feet tall. Extra lights are definitely a must have!
Thanks for another fabulous and interesting gallery. I guess you take extra flashlight batteries LOL. That pipe doesn't look all that big, and I would be scared to death that it would be blocked at the other end and not enough room to turn around in the pipe!
I agree with Jude.
Fabulous photo. I wonder how many flashlights and/or what type were used to light up this completely dark room this well.
Scary and beautiful at the same time.
