Thanks for sharing the pictures.   The bunkers are much better preserved than the ones I saw on the Siegfried line in the 70's----but then giving the history of the two areas, it would be very suprising if were otherwise.   Occassionally a bunker would be found in that area that was in pretty decent shape, but they were the exception.  Most were nothing more than piles of rubble once the allies got done with them.

You're right, even though Switzerland was neutral, Hitler would have taken it one way or another given the opportunity.  
btw, the first time I ever used a metal detector was next to a bunker in Germany.   Found a row of machine gun bullets neatly stitched into the side of a shallow ravine.  (might not have been the smartest thing I ever did, but I was in good company   Cool )
