The history of the Cold War airfields: Altfriedland

During the Cold War


Documents of the former East German "National People's Army" (NVA) from the 1980s refer to a "Altfriedland Highway Strip". north-east of Berlin. Altfriedland is located only 2 km northwest of Neuhardenberg Airfield (formerly Marxwalde). There is no highway there, the outlined orientation of the runway suggests rather a position on the road F 167 (today Federal Road B 167) between Altfriedland and Gottesgabe. This road landing section was probably only planned, but not realised.
This highway strip had the airfield number 2035 in the NVA.

Location of airfield

Planned section on today's federal highway 167 between Altfriedland and Gottesgabe, approx. 3 km northwest of Marxwalde Air Base (today Neuhardenberg).
