Gierłoż - The Wolf's Lair - Hitler WW2 HQ
City: Gierłoż, close to Kętrzyn


Wolf's Lair was Adolf Hitler's Eastern Front military headquarter in WWII.

The complex, which became one of several Führer Headquarters in various parts of Europe, was built for the start of Operation Barbarossa - the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941. It was constructed by Organisation Todt.

The top secret, high security site was in the Masurian woods about 8 km (5.0 mi) east of the small town of Rastenburg - now Kętrzyn. Three security zones surrounded the central complex where the Führer's bunker was located. Despite the security, the most notable assassination attempt against Hitler was made at the Wolf's Lair on 20 July 1944.
