    The tanks are so-called "hard targets" of the Bundeswehr.
    The military training area was used for a long time by the barracks in the Aachen region (Donnerberg barracks, Lützow barracks, etc.).
    In the total of 5! Panzerwrecks is an American M41 Walker Bulldog, three M47 Patton and a smaller crew tank that is located in the lower part of the Buschmühle near the Panzerhöckerlinie on the Inde.
    All tanks are freely accessible, but the hatches are welded shut.

    the wrecked tanks are used by soldiers to practice, the training area is used and is just there. There are days when entering / driving with a red flag is prohibited.

    It is only worth it on weekends as there is a military training area during the week and access is prohibited. Feldjäger control that.

    In the middle of nowhere you can find some old tank wrecks that you can climb around on.
