If you take a look at the Manhattan Project, you get an idea what efforts in research and production (i.e. uranium enrichment) were required.
The Nazis never had a programm that came anywhere near these dimensions.

And the tunnels? The whole 3rd Reich and it's occupied territories were tunneled mostly for the purpose of weapons production.
