Remnants of the Cold War - Nuclear Weapons Depot (Part 2)

Since the visit to the Special Ammunitions Site (SAS) was not planned at all, the drive there was a little adventure.
I knew where the site was, but I had no idea how to get there and what condition the roads - if any - were in. The last nuclear weapons depot was also situated in a very rural area and the anti-tank barriers were still there and we had to walk pretty far, so I reckoned it would be the same here. But there were no tank traps, just a couple of very muddy off-limits farm roads.
As it turned out, there would have been a road directly to the main gate, as the facility is partly used by civilian institutions such as the local forestry office - but with the chance of getting caught...

Anyway, here's the rest of the pictures.

  1. mal wieder sehr interessante und tolle Bilder bei Dir. Danke fürs Zeigen.

    1. Ich habe immer noch ein komisches Gefühl, wenn ich das Wort "Atomwaffenlager" ausspreche.
      Aber irgendwie ist es auch echt cool :)

    1. Das ist es in der Tat. Es gab/gibt wirklich viele dieser Lager in Deutschland, das war mir früher gar nicht so klar, aber je mehr man sich mit der Materie befasst, umso mehr werden auch die Orte, die man besuchen kann :)
