Vogelsang IP – building

Vogelsang IP – building
This building was not built by the Germans, but by the Belgians after the war. They used the same style as the rest of the buildings.

Built as Ordensburg Vogelsang in the 1930s to educate leaders of the Third Reich. During the war it was a refugee centre and military base. After the war the Brits took control of it until 1950 and then it became a Belgian military base until 2006. Now it is open to the public, including the surrounding terrain. Now it is called Vogelsang IP (=International Place).
I learnt about Vogelsang from latium, a flickr contact of mine. He visited Vogelsang in the 1960s when he served in HM Army (16/5th Lancers), see for instance here: www.flickr.com/photos/10804277@N08/3178270072/ and here: www.flickr.com/photos/10804277@N08/2628053663/
