    The Grauerort fortress serves not only the coffee shop for tourists but also for numerous events.

    Unfortunately, a lot would have to be renovated, but no one wants to pay the costs. The cake is really good and not even expensive.

    There are only 2 fortresses of this kind between Hamburg and Cuxhaven. Interesting for adults and children. If you are lucky, you can take part in a guided tour. Then it goes through the former living and service rooms of the well-preserved fortress. In the courtyard of the ring shaped complex there is a café. Bring time and go on a discovery tour. Here we do not experience history from a book, but at the object! That's what makes it exciting

    The place is worth a bike tour. Just go there and explore a fortress.

    The fortress was built by Prussia from 1869 to 1879 to protect against enemy ships on the Elbe, but was never used for military purposes.

    This is a richly dilapidated 19th century fortress that was supposed to control access to Hamburg via the Elbe.
    Today, an association takes care of the maintenance and expansion of the fortress with seemingly a lot of passion.
    Gastronomy:
    After the entrance is paid you come into the courtyard. There you can buy bottled drinks, coffee, tea, cakes and bratwurst on outdoor benches and in the house.
    Museum:
    There is lovingly presented everything that is useful. It would be particularly interesting to keep track of how the work on the fortress is progressing.

    The main entrance was unfortunately locked, a driveway on the Elbe side was open, inside was a camper parking lot, otherwise the facility was falling apart.

    The artillery fort Grauerort was built by Prussia from 1869 to 1879 to protect against enemy ships on the Elbe, but was never used for the purpose of military combat. The fortress is now a popular venue for cultural events. The facility is maintained by a development association and a light railroad runs on the site.

    The impressive artillery town of Grauerort is located northwest of Stade, near Abbenfleth.

    I have to do this round once a year because I am so fascinated by the Grauer Ort fortress near Stade.
    Also wanted to take photos this weekend, unfortunately there was an event for a closed society. That’s why I’ll find out in advance whether there is access for everyone.
