This large site between Beeskow and Ranzig was the standby command centre for the East German Air Force. It held a number of lerge bunker complexes but also scores of smaller einzelbunkers or ‘single bunkers. The latter held around 8 men and were scattered over a large area, split between north and south sites.
Because of their characteristic ventilation pipes which had a distinctive bend at the end, the eizenbunkers loosely resembled dinosaurs and in the post-Cold War era the site became known as the ‘Dino Farm’. The whole area was enclosed by three concentric fences including an electrified one.
The site was already wrecked on a visit in 2003 and has no doubt deteriorated further since then.
