Spiral staircase in a tower used as an emergency exit is pictured in Bundesbank bunker in Cochem
A 20 metre high spiral staircase in a tower used as an emergency exit, is seen inside a Federal Reserve bank (Bundesbank) bunker, prior to the bunker's official opening to the public in Cochem, Germany, March 18, 2016. West Germany's Central Bank (Deutsche Bundesbank) stored some 20 billion German marks of emergency notes in two underground bunkers, one in Frankfurt the other in Cochem, between 1964-1988 during the cold war. The bunker in Cochem, in a quaint residential area, with the entrance disguised over a normal house lies thirty meters (100 feet) under the house with an impregnable concrete bunker of 8,700 square meters (93,000 square feet) containing 300 meters (1000 feet) of tunnels. The bunker could generate its own energy, and in case of a nuclear war it could shelter 175 people for 14 days. REUTERS/Kai Pfaffenbach
