The northeasternmost Nazi fort

So there's this island right on the Northeastern tip of Norway. It's called Vardø, and it was taken over by the Germans during World War 2, along with the rest of Norway.
Now, there's a fortress (Vardøhus) on the main portion of the island that's being maintained today, though it serves as a museum and tourist attraction more than anything else. If one wanders north, though, away from the main population of the island, one comes upon the ruins of another defense bastion. This one's been left alone since the Germans left the island, as far as I know, and shows it.
These photos were actually taken a couple of years ago, but I figured they'd be of interest to the community here.
