Denmark has got a large number of airfields, that were used by the Germans during occupation. The airfields were strenghtened with heavy bunkers, most of them built according to fortress standards. For this topic we have consulted the book ‘German Bunkers in Denmark’, by Rudi Rolf and Jens Andersen. It describes most of the airfields mentioned on our website.

Germany has a large number of airfields as well, that were operational during the war. Due to the fact that we focus mainly on the coastal regions, the selected airfields are situated near the coast. Also, this selection has been made due to practical reasons. We don’t have much information on this topic unfortunately, so we used the internet as a main source. Nevertheless, the internet showed us some airfields that still hold interesting features.


We have choosen the aerial view of former Fliegerhorst Delmenhorst. According to sources, the airfield was a textbook example of how a Fliegerhorst should look like. To begin with the many buildings that were erected within the complexes Caspari-Kaserne and Boelcke-Kaserne. Further research will follow.

For our home country Holland, we have consulted the book ‘Vliegvelden In Oorlogstijd, Nederlandse Vliegvelden Tijdens Bezetting En Bevrijding 1940-1945’ for information on this topic. As a result, we have a detailed overview of all airfields in Holland that were used by the Luftwaffe. However, field research still remains the important component of collecting information onsite.


Displayed is the aerial view of former Fliegerhorst Deelen, which is worth a visit for many reasons. To begin with, it was the largest airfield in Holland with a surface of approximately 40 km². Driving around gives you a good impression of how big it actually was during the war. Secondly, many building, hangars and bunkers still remain and are free to visit. The 'Heimatschutz Architecture' is clearly present on many buildings of complexes Klein-Heidekamp, Groot-Heidekamp, Vrijland, Kop van Deelen and Divisionsdorf. In addition, the Grossraumgefechtstand “Diogenes” was built here by the Luftwaffe, supporting the Nachtjagd in Holland, Belgium and parts of Germany.
