The Historischer Kunstbunker is a climate-controlled bomb shelter that was used to protect art treasures during WWII. Works by Albrecht Dürer, sculptor Veit Stoss and Martin Behaim, the maker of a bafflingly accurate 15th-century globe, were kept safe here from the allied bombs raining down on the city.
