Wortegem - Stp Goldammer
German Radar Site

Updated August 25 2008, updated May 29 2010 post war pictures added.

My main source for this article came from this site: http://www.atlantikwall.info/radar/belgian/rb_.htm

The following radar equipment was installed here:
2X FuSE 65 Würzburg-Riese and probably a Freya.

With permission of the land owner, I visited the site and found the two FuSE 65 socles and probably also the socle of the Freya radar.
Interesting to know is that there were two FuSE 65 installed, one for guiding the German fighter plane and one for following the enemy plane.

Post war picture of the two destroyed Würzburg-Riese FuSE 65.  The building has also disappeared.

The brick building

_

The brick building with original door in place, it was made of wood but is in a terrible state.

_

The building can't be entered, it is locked but through the windows you have a clear view.  The inner walls are gone.  There were probably 5 rooms.

Is this the basement of the Freya Radar ?  (private ground, isn't on the map)
