Flaktürme

VikingLifeBlog

Flak towers (German: Flaktürme) were eight complexes of large, above-ground, anti-aircraft gun blockhouse towers constructed in the cities of Berlin (3), Hamburg (2), and Vienna (3) from 1940 onwards. Other cities that used flak towers included Stuttgart and Frankfurt. Smaller single-purpose flak towers were built at key outlying German strongpoints, such as at Angers, France and Helgoland, Germany.

    The Flaktürme were a fine example of German Steel/Concrete engineering besides their famous, North-Atlantic Fortifications, U-Boat pens and The Fuhrer bunker of course, none of which could be destroyed by allied demolition engineers so they were left to the elements, to decay with the passage of time. The Flaktowers however saved many Germans who would have otherwise died in the bombings, while they may not have been able to to thwart the air-invasion as intended “air-defense emplacements” they do however serve as a reminder to the legacy of era construction.

      You are absolutely right, and they stand as a thorn in the eye of the anti-white establishment.

        An everlasting reminder, even if Deutschland cannot properly utilize them an memorials. If I recall one was turned into a climbing wall, another into an office of administration, a coffee house with another just abandoned not unlike the Austrian Flak towers.
