Inside Bahnhof's underground data centre stronghold.

In 2009, internet service provider Bahnhof opened the doors to its underground Pionen data centre in the White Mountains of Stockholm, Sweden. The facility shares the same name and location as a 1970s atomic shelter built by the Swedish government during the Cold War. If that's not enough mystique for you, it also hosted Wikileaks' servers and has the architectural opulence of a <i>James Bond</i> villain's underground lair. Check out the rest of the gallery for an in-depth tour. [Image credit: Bahnhof]
