It's a Sprengboje D (ie sweep-obstruction, placed in front of the minelines to destroy the enemy's mechanical sweepwire/-cutters).

Based on the two round access plates the lifting rings on the top, and the upper and lower straight horns my best guess would be a UMB line. Note that the dragline may or may not be present however in the condition shown by the pic would be unlikely to be visible. See pic. Source id is Deutche Minenraumdienstvorschrift Nr 13.
