Germany Fliegerhorst Jüterbog-Damm, Germany - June 2017

Recommended Posts

This was a solo venture while on a recent trip to Berlin. It's around 60km outside the city so it's a pain to reach by public transport but big enough to spend a few hours once you get there. The buildings are pretty empty but there are a few cool Soviet murals dotted around and very little graffiti. I'm a bit vague on the history of this one but here's a bit I translated from Wiki.

 

The Fliegerhorst Jüterbog-Damm was an airfield and flying school used by German air forces during WWI (Luftstreitkräfte) & WWII (Luftwaffe). The site was used as an artillery-flying station from 1914 to 1918 for the Luftstreitkräfte. After the end of WWI the installations were demilitarised according to the peace treaty of Versailles, since this prohibited the operation of an air force. The Fliegerhorst was massively expanded from 1934/35, under the direction of the German architect Max Cetto. There were six large hangars in the north of the airport. Behind were other business and accommodation buildings. As early as 1934, the Jüterbog bomber flying school was based here, which was later renamed Kampferliegerschule Jüterbog and Kampfliegerlehrgang Jüterbog. Further aircraft training regiments, aircraft pilot schools as well as a local reconnaissance school were located here until 1945. Foillowing the end of WWII the site was occupied by Soviet forces until 1994 when it was handed back to the German government.

38. You can only just make out the soldier in this mural. Sadly many of these have peeled away now.

Thanks for looking. I really need to learn to shorten my reports!

Interesting area. I like the wall paintings and the red staircase with the leaves.

Thanks Andy, lots more places like this on my list around Berlin :) 

 

There are many abandoned places. But unfortunately, most places in and around Berlin are quite destroyed by vandalism and with lots of graffiti.

      Somewhere in Germany, in a quiet park, lie those beautiful Tanks.
      Quiet park ? Not really, a military barrack nearby often throws training in this park, as the sign explained us kindly. 😂

      We were lucky enough to dodge those training, even if i'm pretty sure it doesn't happen more than once a month, but still.

      We were not able to find which type of tanks it was, i read on the internet that it could be some M40 Patton or M41 Walker Bulldog,
      but i'm skeptical, as both of them were produced in the early 50's and were used in vietnam war and korea war, far from Germany.
      And, as they were demilitarized and trashed, the clues were hard to find.

      However, it was like a scene of war, one Tank crashed near a tree, another one half buried, very dramatic.
       
      Even if it was a short one, it was a very good exploration, with a lot of interesting light and very cool models.

      An abandoned beacon in the baltic sea. There are two of it. One 1000m and the other one in 4000m distance from the runway.
      Ther were used to enlarge the range of the runway ...so the pilots could navigate easier to the short runway.
       
      Build and used by the NVA. The army of the former GDR... (DDR).

      Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose!
       
      Putting this one off all week with temperatures reaching the 30s, the moment came on a somewhat stormy day to check this place out, taking full advantage of the slightly cooler – yet humid air.
       
      My first explore out of the UK too which made for something special, despite being a derp it was still something different and unique for myself in comparison to the UK.
       
      There’s not much left of the place and the history is scarce, however it looks as though work began rebuilding the place but the cost of development was a spanner in the works.
       
      The basement also contained a septic tank which is no longer allowed in the region, combining that with the nearest sewer being some distance away making development even more expensive.

      This one was visited on my latest trip through Germany.
      This was the water treatment facility of a power plant. That power plant is already gone. There were also some outdoor water basins ,but they were well overgrown.
      The  only thing I took from this facility were several mosquito's bites.

      A few weeks ago I visited an old abandonend chocolate factory in the south-west of Germany. The rainy day normally suits the shabby mood of the environment but of course requires long exposure. Unfortunately I forgot to turn off steady shot (camera shake compensation) so 50% of my pics turned out to be blurry. 😖 Shit happens!
