The former German military camp is situated on windy Cape Tulliniemi in Hanko S. Finland.
Nature is slowly taking over again and covering the remaining "Baracke"
Despite its dark history the area is very beautiful and full of surprises for the occasional visitor. The rich birdlife is one think to admire another one is the stunning ever changing seascape.
The northern beach is mostly made up of pebbles.
Many different remains of Hitlers war in the north can be discovered under the topsoil. The finds illustrate the daily life of the soldiers in the camp. Men and women caught "in transit"between the frontline and home.
