Rammstein concert Rotterdam (NL) 2019

Rammstein the band from Germany. Everyone started talking about them agian after their album release in 2019. They did a stadium tour in Europe that same summer. The visuals for the tour look just as good as the new album.

 

An incredibly warm day. And what do I do? I went to a Rammstein concert with a lot of pyros. In De Kuip there was a heat plan so there were drink water points and we were allowed to take a soft plastic bottle with us without the cap

We had to wait a while for the new album but it is just as good as there live show. It gives you a lot of energy even if you are just listening to the cd.

Rammstein started there show a bit earlier than the schedule said. Which is a nice change compared to the many big rock stars who always let their fans wait. They started with a big bang. Literally, everything immediately on fire and even warmer than it already was. Unfortunately, me and my friend quickly noticed that we were so far away from the speakers that the fire was half a second before the sound. It was not a major differents but just enough to notice it.

 

It was a great show everything was well arranged.

Le grand bunker Musée du Mur de l’Atlantique

Avenue du 6 Juin, 14150 Ouistreham, France

An old 17 m high bunker that was part of the Atlantic Wall in 1944. We went there in July I think it was one of the best museums I went to on this trip to Normandy. It still showed signs of the fights that used to be there. The door was still busted from the explosion that was used to open it many years ago.

The things that were on display explained the story of the bunker really well. This made everything come to life a lot more.

Most of the letters and things from the soldiers were behind glass. This is not something weird for a museum of course.

So of the rooms were partially closed to recreate what the rooms used to look like. when the bunker was in use. There were puppets and tables filled with fake foods and objects. They made bunk beds and recreated the kitchen.

The texts that were there to explain the objects on display were simple no unnecessary use of difficult words.

At the top of the bunker, there was a lookout where you could almost see the beach. You were also allowed to go to the room where you were able to see the see.
