A Soviet, Red Army, tank at the Pniewo Ostwall Museum near Kalawa (Kalau in Ger.) also site of Panzerwerk 717. See the description of this and the next 3 images!
As we drove towards Wysoka (Hochwalde in German) we seen these two armored positions on our right . Later I learned from the www that this one is a Mock Positions to draw fire.
This map, although not very clear shows the area we went to next. But any name or number you can read you could find on the www if you are interested.
The entrance to Armored Battery #5 (Panzerbatterie #5).
A close-up from that sign about Panzerbatterie #5.
A sign in English and German about Panzerbatterie #5
On Panzerbatterie #5 grounds a sign about a resort in Lubrza (Liebenau in Ger.), an area that also has extensive Ostwall facilities.
More information about Panzerbatterie #5.
A close up of the Nordwerk (North position) from the previous sign.
Information in English and German of this Nordwerk part of Panzerbatterie #5.
More drawings from the previous sign of Panzerbatterie #5.
This map shows you where Panzerbatterie #5 is in the Ostwall Oder-Warthe Bend defense line.
At the Panzer battery #5 entrance is this turret mockup, but they made it of concrete vise steel.
Panzerbatterie #5 visitor area, our car is parked in back.
From the Panzerbatterie #5 visitor area one steps up a few feet and one is on top of the uncompleted Nordwerk of the battery.
What is this for? For the flamethrower, an exhaust?
It seems this is popular underground entrance way for visitors, but we didn’t go, it was late and we didn’t have any lights.
This opening must be part of the ventilation system of the Panzerbatterie #5 uncompleted Nordwerk.
A view down onto the uncompleted Panzerbatterie #5 Nordwerk.
Looking down the entrance of the Panzer battery #5 uncompleted Nordwerk.
Going further up from Panzer battery #5 uncompleted Nordwerk we came across this sign and choose to find Panzerturm #2 and #3.
Looking for Panzerturm #2 and #3 of Panzerbatterie #5 but we didn’t find them.
But we came across this brick building; the www says for antitank defense they only had 3.5 cm PAK (Panzerabwehrkanonen) and they were kept on top in brick buildings.
