The former German underground fortification was constructed in 1899, consisting of three sections, the South Emplacement, North Emplacement and Underground Headquarters, of which German troops were proud. In 1914, a battle between Japanese and German troops broke out and eventually German troops surrendered. Before withdrawing, German troops destroyed both the South and North Emplacements. The underground headquarters covers a total area of 2,000 square meters and has 42 rooms, mostly of 3 floors with a few 5 floors. On the top of the construction there is a cast-iron lookout tower and 2 ponds.

The construction has 3 sections serving military operations, residences and material storages. The construction was completed with the architectural techniques of hill splitting, injection molding and backfilling, and is believed to have been the most successful military works in Asia in terms of size, structure and function. The fortification was consecutively used by German, Japanese and American troops. After the liberation of the People’s Republic of China, the construction was once used by the Chinese navy and now it is open to the public.
