Once entering the bunker through the West entrance, there is a passage to the right. It has been covered over with concrete and a cardboard V2 rocket to show its size. The passage originally gave access to the lower parts of the main bunker which are inaccessible since they are flooded. Supposedly, the V2 rockets would have been brought through the passages (this one and a similar one at the East side) to the launch piers outside. But there is no concluding evidence that this was the plan. Even more so, there are no holes in the concrete through which the rockets would have been moved outdoors. It is thus more likely that the rockets would have been launched from two launch silos at the northern section (now filled with water), directly adjacent to the main bunker.
