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.

No sooner have people left the horrors of the two world wars behind them than the next war is already looming - the Cold War.  These are the years of the Cuban Missile Crisis, the building of the Berlin Wall and nuclear armament.  The great powers USA and the Soviet Union threaten each other with ever more powerful nuclear weapons.  At any time the cold war can turn into a hot one.
