Battery "Goeben"

This German coastal battery stood on the island of Wolin and defended Pomerania bay against assaults from sea.

It was constructed between 1938 and 1939 and consisted of a fire control tower (see picture) and three 283 mm canons. In 1940, these canons were dismantled and sent to Norway.

Battery "Goeben" today:
The battery is now a museum, which is open during the summer season.
