In the middle of the Eifel National Park, you’ll find the 100 hectare site of the former National Socialist “Ordensburg” fortress called Vogelsang. After the Second World War, it became a training ground for British, and then Belgian, troops.
Since it was opened in 2006 as a model project, “Vogelsang IP | International Place”, the site has developed into a multi-layered, international culture and education centre, a place of learning outside the classroom and an unusual event and conference location.

In September 2016, the new visitor’s and exhibition centre, the Forum Vogelsang IP, was opened. The two main exhibitions are the documentation of the National Socialist period, “Destiny: Master Race. National Socialist Ordensburgen - Both Fascination and Crime” and the adventure exhibition “Wilderness Dreams” organised by the Eifel National Park Centre.

The new Vogelsang IP Forum also has a seminar and conference centre, a restaurant with an unusual view of the landscape, and a viewing platform on the 48 metre-high historic tower.

Radioteleskop Effelsberg

With a diameter of 100 metres, the Radio Telescope Effelsberg is one of the largest fully mobile radio telescopes on earth.  Since its commissioning in 1972, the company has continuously worked on improving its technology (e. g. B. a new surface of the antenna dish, better receivers for high-quality data, extremely lownoise electronics) so that even today it is still considered one of the most modern telescopes in the world.
