What's the source of the photo?

I could be well off the mark, but I doubt it's Eastern Europe.
Looks like one of the river Rhine railway bridges.

There are 4 Panthers and a Stug. in this 'ditch' There is no possible way all could have been on a bridge at the same time. They have been bulldozed in. It looks Eastern Europe to me and I think it could be an old Prussian Fortress in Konsisberg perhaps? I am confident that if this photo was in a western Archive it would have been seen well before today.

Thanks Yuri.
That page has following description for this photo (and some more):
"Überall im Zwischengelände an der Straße von Waldburg nach Seepoethen lagen ausgebrannte
und beschädigte deutsche Panzer vom Typ "Panther" der Panzerdivision "Großdeutschland" (2.2.45)"

I checked maps and that area was deep in country with some small timber road bridges.

I still think original photo is of a major railroad bridge close/in larger town.
Otherwise how to explain presence of Fahrverbot und Fahrerlaubnissignale (Ve 2) close to AFV on the ground?
