Camp Vogelsang

Vogelsang has undergone major changes over the last century. Once an area of meadowland on a mountain ridge in the Eifel region, it was used as a National Socialist training institution before becoming an international military training area, used by British and Belgian Forces, and subsequently enlarged by new military buildings. On 1 January, 2006, the site was opened to the general public. Today, the former training ground forms part of the Eifel National Park, and the complex of buildings, which comprises some 100 hectares, will be improved for future civilian uses.
