V1 Feuerstellung Val Ygot

This launch ramp for the V-1 was ment to be used for bombardments on Great Britain and was aimed at London, but was never used because it was bombed by the Allied and abandoned.

A part of the ramp is reconstructed and the site is open to the public. There are also information signs.
