Stützpunkt Vogelnest

(Batterie "Tirpitz")

The battery was built in the last months of the war and was never finished. Both S 561 emplacements for double 38cm turrets are unfinished; only the emplacement part is done. A vast amount of bunkers was planned to be built but this never happened. For more information about the guns see the information about re-use of naval guns in the Armour & Armament section in the topmenu. One S 561 is now a museum and tells the story about the battery and the bunkers in the neighbourhood.

24 cm impact wrench for the bolts that hold the turret.
