As I said, I'm not convinced that it actually is a bunker. However, the ground around it looks disturbed, like is does around the other contructions.

Battery Hossfeld was located directly on the western outskirts of Altenwalde. The bedding of the single gun was finished at the end of the war. However, the cannon was never mounted. It was a French captured gun. The location was here: . Directly behind it was a light anti-aircraft position in the Altenwalde castle ruins. A little further south a small 15 cm. artillery position.

Best regards, Martin.

I think, the guns were mounted. The 2 fotos should be from this location. Sometimes the Batterie is also called Hessfeld, but I think Hossfeld is correct.
Look also here in the forum:
