It resembles an agent thriller: hidden in the Moselle slopes in the middle of a residential area stored in the secret Bundesbank bunker Cochem over 22 years banknotes of a substitute currency of the DM, which would have replaced in a crisis situation within 14 days, the current DM. A bunker nobody knew about with an emergency currency nobody knew. Built during the Cold War, where everything seemed possible from bad money to atomic bombs and the Federal Bank was obliged by the Federal Government to take precautions to guarantee the stability of the German economy.
The Bundesbank bunker is considered one of the most closely guarded secrets of the old Federal Republic, it is a unique monument of its time, a huge underground fortress whose fascination and special atmosphere can still be felt and experienced today. Since March 2016, the bunker is a museum and can be visited in a guided tour.
