Germany A Military Airfield in Germany

Recommended Posts

My first real Urban Exploration was done on that airfield. This is where it all began for me and it wasn't even that long ago! 

The airfield opened in 1936, initially for the usage for civilian air traffic such as sport flying (if that's a word). Not only that but the area was also used for construction of various aircraft-related mechanisms and for supporting the army with weapon technology during the Second World War. The Red Army took over operations after WW2 which explains the signs with cyrillic writing.

      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.

      In the 1950s, this cinema, with its 1,000 seats, was one of the largest in Germany.
      It has been over 100 years since the cinema opened. Now it has not been used as a cinema for nearly 30 years.
      Then the lower area was rebuilt and still used as a disco. But that too has been several years now.

      This is one for the history books, I am really unsure how long this factory will stay how it is. It's one of the best, if not the best spot, that I have ever visited. It looked like there had been some vandalism at first when we entered, but in the upper and other parts of the factory, everything looks so untouched, it's unbelievable.

      The office building of the Textima company in east germany was left behind with most of the stuff inside after the wall was fallen.
      Really beautiful to see the natural decay without much of vandalism.
      We couldn't see everything of the building cause the demolishing had already started while we have been inside.
      The only part which was saved is the old Textima logo.

      During the Cold War, this bunker was built as an auxiliary hospital.
      The overlying school was opened in the 60s while the hospital was officially inaugurated in the 80s.
      It offered 2,370 places and never went into operation.
      At the turn of the millennium, it was relieved of its responsibilities, the inventory transferred to other states, and the hospital will be soon demolished.
