Tour Report: Command Post F13

The third and final command post on our tour didn't have any command bunkers, only the office building, car shelters and some ammunition bunkers.
It was part of a larger area that during the cold war used to be the joint command post of an anti-aircraft unit and a radio-technical battalion of the East German National People's Army (NVA).
Someone had put rocks by the side of the road to prevent people from parking right in front of the place, so we had to drive past and find a different spot to park, which we eventually did, but it was a bit of a way to walk back.
Getting on the premises was easy enough, the fence didn't really deserve to be called a fence. Moving around the area and finding our way on the other hand was considerably harder, because all the former roads and walkways were so overgrown with all sorts of weeds that we couldn't really tell where the roads were. So it took us some time to walk around the entire place to make sure that there really wasn't any underground bunker that we had overlooked. There was none.
But further research indicated that there might be one in or near a different part of the larger complex that is a little down the road.
I guess we will find out the next time we are there :)
