  • The building is in private hands and now sells for 4 million euros! It just did not do: shooting, paintball, laser tag. but still what it always closed there excursions are only around himself and posozercat the beauty of the fortification. from bastion has only part-Reduit in early 20 century from 1906 to 1914, he lost all bastion wall and nearby trees. This was done due to laying railways along the bottom water of the moat, which certainly broadened and deepened.

  • Built in the second half of the 19th century. Got its name from a track across from the Observatory. In 1910, during the laying of the railroad, the bastion of lost parts of their buildings. After the war it was prefab conscription. Interesting historical place.

It was here that he worked as an astronomer Bessel, who identified the exact position of the stars. In the year 1910 bastion was demolished during the construction of the road, leaving only the inner part of the semicircular shape. During World War II Gestapo here.
