    Yes, we have the same probleme in france. Near my home there is the U-Boat base of Saint Nazaire. Indestructible, it's difficult to integrate it in the city. There are many examples here, I know a bunker in the town center which was rehabilitated in bar.

    U-Boat base during WW2
    U-Boat base today

    Who knows what to do with it? In Vienna too, the huge Flak towers are still standing (a great buzz for me!). They tried to demolish one after the war, and nearly wiped out the nearby buildings instead - the walls are typically about 6 meters thick.

    When I was last there, most had been turned into museums, terrariums/ aquariums, and rock climbing walls, with a single example being retained by the MoD, having direct underground access to Parliament.

    That really poses an interesting problem. Very expensive to maintain, and very expensive to tear down. Not that I would prefer it to be torn down, but at 800k euros just to maintain the minimum there is very expensive. With the size of the place, there has got to be something that can be done to preserve it and use it for something else.
