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:

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.
