    To the north of the village of Vogelsang lies an abandoned town in the middle of the forest. After the Second World War until 1994, tens of thousands of soldiers lived here in one of the largest Soviet garrisons outside the Soviet Union. Many of the old buildings are still standing, including barracks, bars, a theater and a sports hall, but many are in danger of collapsing, and you can already see from the outside how nature is taking back the city. Entering the former military area is prohibited and dangerous.

    Recommended, particularly the Sporthalle and the theater. It is open for visits and not so full as other abandoned places like Teufelsberg or Beelitz. The place is huge with a lot of buildings, so calculate at least 3 hours for the visit.

    Is the site officially accessible or cordoned off?
