Forst Zinna is part of one of the largest german military bases located next to Jüterbog, Germany. The whole region tells the story of 150 years war history in Germany. First build and used by german Kaiserreich and later used and expanded by the Nazis and the GDR administration the soviet army took over the area of Forst Zinna in 1970. Tanks rolled over the sandy landscape every day and countless soldiers lived in the base. With the fall of the Soviet Empire Forst Zinna became an abandoned place that today appears to be a huge open air museum. With time the ruins collapsed and nature took over the forgotten place. The local government decided to remove all the buidings and to change Forst Zinna into a nature protection area.
