  1. Thank you very much. It was like a small bunker, only one room. Maybe it was used as storage for ammunition, but I have no clue to be honest.
  2. In the middle of the woods, they appear all of a sudden: giant walls and ruins as well as holes hidden beneath branchwood and covered by foliage - the remnants of an old shooting range of the German Wehrmacht (the armed forces of Nazi-Germany). Even the soil itself is still cotaminated by bullets and casings. The remains can be identified as ammunition from the Wehrmacht as well as from the Bundeswehr and the US-Army, which prove that all of these three armies used the area for their shooting exercises. Unfortunately, I haven´t come across confirmed historical sources concerning the former shooting range, but it seems to be obvious that the area was a shooting range built by the Wehrmacht. Not confirmed sources indicate that the US-Americans blasted the buildings after World War II. After the destruction the area was apparently still used for military exercises on occasion. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  3. This is simply amazing. The building itself - the history behind it, the architecture, all the colours and different patterns inside... and the garden. Impressive captures as well!
  4. The staircase is just WOW... Lovely report and well taken photos.
  5. The small and simple house is a building that might be overlooked pretty easily. Yet, upon entering the small world of the former owner reveals itself. Anna's small realm appeared simple but pretty cosy as well. Faith was visible part of her life. She was a nun who was also engaged in missionary work abroad. According to speculations the sister never came back home from a foreign mission in a crisis region. To what extent the rumours of her disappearance are true is probably always going to stay an unsolved mystery. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
