Switzerland. Canton Aargau. Full-Reuenthal . A road warning sign warns drivers from children on their way to school. The camouflage bunker from Fort Reuenthal. Fort Reuenthal is a 20th-century Swiss fortification located near the Swiss border with Germany. Built between 1937 and 1939, the fort overlooks the Rhine  and was intended to prevent a crossing of the Rhine at the hydroelectric plant at Dogern. It was a component of the Swiss Border Line of defenses. It was armed with two artillery blocks for 75mm guns and two machine gun blocks. The fort uses camouflage, with house-like superstructures over some positions. Deactivated as a military post in 1988, it is operated as a museum. 5.02.2019 © 2019 Didier Ruef
