We didn't find any trace of the ski shaped buildings, the open water tank, the firing control bunker, the detonater storage and personel shelter. Most likely some of this buildings still remain.
It is almost certain that this site has never been operational.
The Preliminary assembly(C) and Dampferzeuger building(D) are build of brick stones and are standing alongside each other connected with a post war farm construction.
The ruins of B: Temporary storage.
Concrete road leading to the launch ramp.
F: Pump station. The roof is gone.
D: Dampferzeuger Building.
Sabotage of the workmen ?: very poor quality of the construction.
The a-magnetic building, completely in brick stones.
The launch ramp, completely destroyed. The supporting blocks can be found around.
