VIENNA FLAK TOWERS

Vienna Flak Tower Flakturm

THE VIENNA FLAK TOWERS AND BUNKER COMPLEX IN AUGARTEN PARK ARE STARK REMINDERS OF WW2

Map Vienna, Austria

Seventy Five years have passed since the end of WW2.  However, during an otherwise lovely stroll in Vienna’s beautiful Augarten park, there are stark reminders of an incredibly dark past.  The Vienna Flak Towers (Flakturm) and nearby Bunker Complex are ominous and completely offset an otherwise picturesque scene.  They just seem out of place.  Travel through the neighborhoods of Vienna and you will find other Flak Towers.  One has been converted into the city’s aquarium, the Haus des Meers.  Other Flak Towers host cell tower equipment and colonies of pigeons.  

Under the direction of Adolf Hitler, the Nazis had slave laborers construct six massive concrete anti-aircraft Flak Towers (Flaktürme) and bunkers in the heart of Vienna to defend the city from Allied bombing.  To protect the First District of Vienna, the three pairs of Flak Towers form a triangle around St. Stephen’s Cathedral.  The Vienna Flak Towers are located in the second, third and sixth districts.  In addition to defense, the imposing size and immense firepower of the Vienna Flak Towers was meant to have a psychological impact as well.  

Three similar, but more massive Flak Towers were constructed in Berlin and two in Hamburg.

Anti-aircraft guns in each tower could fire 8,000 rounds per minute with a range of 8 kilometers in a full 360-degree field of fire.  As a result, Allied bombers tended to avoid the airspace overhead.  That said, these monstrosities were in fixed positions, so offered no defense to other areas of the city.  Having reinforced concrete walls 12 feet thick, the towers also served as air-raid shelters for up to 10,000 people.  

Allied bombers conducted 52 raids on Vienna.  The heaviest attack on the city took place on 12 March 1945.  Several buildings and cultural monuments were destroyed or badly damaged.  Almost 9,000 people were killed and around 37,000 homes were destroyed.

VIENNA FLAK TOWERS – AUGARTEN PARK

Augarten Vienna Flak Towerwikimedia commons

Perhaps the most prominent Flak Towers, Flaktürme VII G (Gun Tower) and L (Command Tower) are two of three surviving Vienna Flak Towers in Augarten Park.  These were also the last two Flak Towers constructed in Vienna and were codenamed “Peter.”

The cylindrical G-Tower (gun tower) is the highest and the most technically sophisticated of all Luftwaffe Anti-aircraft flak towers in the Third Reich.   G-Tower is 55 meters tall (180 feet) and has a 3.5 meter (11.5 feet) thick roof.  In 1946, local children playing in the tower ignited 128mm munitions.  The explosion blew the roof off the tower. 

The square Fire Control tower is 31 meters tall and during WW2 was used as a communications center for detecting Allied bombers and directing ant-aircraft fire.

Today, both Flak Towers are empty and crumbling.  Their only residents are pigeons and their guano.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. – George Santayana, The Life of Reason, 1905

These imposing historical relics should be preserved as a reminder of what happens when evil men take power.  In a deep long-term post World War II malaise, the Austrian government appears to be hoping that these megastructures will simply disappear or somehow be overtaken by the trees in the park.

Rather than choosing to let the Vienna Flak Towers crumble under a policy of “controlled decay,” the Austrian government should restore these structures for educational purposes. Restoring the air raid shelters and the lengthy tunnel networks underneath the Flak Towers would make for an outstanding educational exhibit.  In fact, Flaktürme II L was successfully converted into the Haus de Meeres or House of the Sea aquarium in 1956.   So there is a precedent.

THE BUNKER COMPLEX – AUGARTEN PARK

Schankwirtschaft Bunker Vienna Flak Towersschankwirtschaft.at

At the western entrance to Augarten Park, a former bunker complex has been repurposed into the Die Schankwirtschaft or Bunker Cafe.   This off-the-beaten-path cafe has an incredibly interesting vibe to it (as far as converted bunker cafes go).  More importantly, the Bunker Cafe has played host to the schallplatten flohmarkt, Vienna’s largest vintage vinyl record album flea market, typically held in early November.  The record album flea market is a 100 percent local event.  There is little to no information advertising the record show and you will likely find more Bee Gees albums than tourists.  For those seeking something out of the ordinary, it is a total cultural experience and well worth the time.  Contact the Bunker Cafe for details.

VIENNA FLAK TOWERS – HAUS DES MEERES

Since 1956, a Vienna Flak Tower has housed the Haus des Meeres, the city aquarium.  Although still identifiable, the Flak Tower has been modernized and changed architecturally to the point it is no longer considered a WW2 landmark.  In July 2015, the Vienna City Council unanimously decided to sell the Flak Tower to the Haus des Meeres for a symbolic sum of one euro.

Today, the Haus des Meeres has a permanent exhibition with a 20 minute film and guided tours, focused on Vienna’s Flak Towers.  It has a rooftop cafe, Cafe Ocean Sky, considered one of Vienna’s Top Rooftop Cafes.   To visit, travel by Ubahn on the U3 line to Neubaugasse.

VIENNA FLAK TOWERS –  STIFTKASERNE

Stiftskaserne Vienna Flak Towerwikimedia commons

Another Vienna Flak Tower is located at the Stift Barracks.  It housed eight 128 mm guns in four pairs and had an additional eight stations each containing four 20 mm guns.  This Vienna Flak Tower is currently maintained by the Austrian Army as a safe haven for government officials in the event of a disaster or state of emergency.  This tower is inaccessible to the public; however, you can view it from the side streets.

VIENNA FLAK TOWERS – ARENBERG PARK

Arenbergpark Vienna Flak Towerwikimedia commons

Two imposing Vienna Flak Towers are located in the Arenberg Park in the Third District.  They were codenamed “Valerian.”  Constructed in December 1942, these towers primarily served as a deterrent against Allied bombers.  Anti-aircraft guns were positioned on the corners of the upper platform.  There were eight 128 mm caliber guns and and 16 guns that were 20 mm caliber.  Additionally, these two Flak Towers once housed a WW2 military field hospital capable of assisting 800 wounded and served as an air raid shelter for 15,000 residents.  These Vienna Flak Towers are closed to the public.

OUR EXPERIENCE VISITING THE VIENNA FLAK TOWERS AND BUNKER COMPLEX IN AUGARTEN PARK 

After several hours of rummaging through foreign pressings of Beatles and Pink Floyd vinyl albums at the flea market at the Bunker Cafe, we spent an hour walking through the beautiful Augarten Park. We were completely intrigued by the existence of the Vienna Flak Towers and Bunker Complex in the heart of one of Vienna’s most popular parks.  Only three cities in the world have similar structures:  Berlin, Hamburg, and Vienna.

At a distance, these massive, hulking towers of concrete overshadow all the other nearby buildings. Truth be told, I had a greater appreciation of their size when viewing them from a path on the outskirts of the Park.

As we stood there in the Augarten, I traveled back in time to 1945 and imagined two perspectives. I imagined looking down on the Flak Towers from an Allied bomber flying overhead. I then imagined what it must have been like for a resident of Vienna on the ground having to depend on these concrete monstrosities for survival.

Lastly, I imagined what could be — namely, preserving these behemoths for the future in a way people could learn valuable lessons from the past.

Our visit to the Park coincided with a gathering of members of the Jewish community paying their respects to family members in Vienna killed during the Holocaust.  This poignant reminder of what evil people are capable of was a sober reality check.

PRO TIPS FOR VISITING THE VIENNA FLAK TOWERS

The following PRO TIPS will help you make your experience touring the Vienna Flak Towers more enjoyable:

PRO TIP 1 — VERY IMPORTANT.  The fact that there are monstrous concrete Flak Towers and a bunker complex in Augarten Park is unmistakable.  However, there is little to no information to be found on either the Vienna Flak Towers or the bunker.  A great reason to read our Travel Guide to the Vienna Flak Towers!

PRO TIP 2 — VERY IMPORTANT.  Sadly, you cannot enter the towers or air raid shelters. To really get a sense of how massive these structures are and exactly how much reinforced concrete was used, take the time to observe the Vienna Flak Towers from both vantage points — far away and close up.

PRO TIP 3.  The most prominent Vienna Flak Towers are the towers in Augarten Park.  Use our directions above to find the other Flak Towers in the city as they are not that well known. 

PRO TIP 4.  For history buffs, the Haus des Meeres aquarium houses a Vienna Flak Towers Exhibit focusing on their history, construction, and use.

PRO TIP 5.  The vinyl record album flea market at the Bunker Cafe is a real treat.  Surprisingly, there is a vintage vinyl subculture in Vienna with several hardcore collectors.  You can enjoy a bit of history, have a coffee in the bunker, and enjoy searching for various foreign pressings of your favorite albums.  Contact the Bunker Cafe for details.

Jewish Vienna Forgotten Internment Camps

JEWISH VIENNA | FORGOTTEN INTERNMENT CAMPS

VIENNA’S JEWS WERE DEPORTED FROM THESE FORGOTTEN INTERNMENT CAMPS PERSPECTIVES   Unlike in Germany, where the Jewish population was deported from several different cities, in Austria deportations of the Jewish population were centralized from Vienna’s Aspangbahnhof or Aspang Railway Station.  From February 1941 to October 1942, the majority of the Vienna’s Jewish population was deported to ghettos and concentration camps in the east from this train station.    The transports to the camps were organized by Austrian born SS Captain Adolf Eichmann, who was in charge of the Nazi Central Agency for Jewish Emigration in Vienna.  Eichmann had one primary objective — to speed up the rate that Jews were being deported from the city. Before being deported, Jews were held against their will at four internment camps in Vienna’s 2nd District: – Kleine Sperlgasse 2a; – Castellezgasse 35; – Malzgasse 7; and  – Malzgasse 16 At these camps, Jews were bullied, humiliated, and robbed of their honor and last possessions before being sent to their deaths.  Today, these camps have all been completely forgotten to history. Between 1939-1945, a total of 48,953 Jews were forcibly deported from Vienna.  Of this number, 47,035 Jews were forcibly transported on trains that departed from the Aspangbahnhof.  Tragically, only 1,073 of the Jews deported from the Aspangbahnhof would survive the Holocaust.    HOMECOMPANION GUIDE    Disclosure: White House Travel is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and Agoda affiliate programs, designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon and affiliated sites at no extra cost to you.

Operation Radetzky Memorial in Am Spitz Floridsdorf

OPERATION RADETZKY MEMORIAL

Table of Contents1 A MEMORIAL DEDICATED TO THE MEN WHO TRIED TO SAVE A CITY2 OPERATION RADETZKY2.1 THE NERO DECREE2.2 TRAGEDY STRIKES2.3 SAVING VIENNA3 OPERATION RADETZKY MEMORIAL4 EPILOGUE5 NEAR THIS PLACE6 BEST PLACES TO STAY7 BOOKSHELF8 A MEMORIAL DEDICATED TO THE MEN WHO TRIED TO SAVE A CITY Am Spitz, 21st District   OPERATION RADETZKY On 19 March 1945, Hitler issued what became known as the “Nero Decree” — the planned destruction of all infrastructure within the German Reich.  Operation Radetzky was the code name given to a defensive plan organized by a group of Austrian opponents of the Nazi regime to surrender the city of Vienna to the advancing Soviet army.  The plan involved four major players: Major Carl Szokoll, Major Karl Biederman, Lieutenant Rudolph Raschke, and Second Lieutenant Alfred Huth.  Today, the Operation Radetzky Memorial stands in their honor. THE NERO DECREE In Vienna, German troops were ordered to destroy the city’s vital infrastructure for transportation, information, industry and public utilities.  This would include bridges, railway stations, water plants, electrical plants, gas plants, important road corridors, public transportation networks – in short anything and everything the enemy could use to help them advance their goals.   Viennese Major Carl Szokoll was instructed to draft the plans for Vienna’s self-destruction.  However, this was not Szokoll’s first rodeo.  In July 1944, Szokoll participated in Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg’s plot to assassinate Hitler at the Wolf’s Lair and to assume power.  During Operation Valkyrie, Stauffenberg detonated a bomb in the presence of Hitler; however, Hitler miraculously survived the blast.  Believing incorrectly that Hitler had been killed, Szokoll and other plotters rounded up the leading SS and Nazi officials in Vienna. During the ensuing investigation, Szokoll was able to convince the Gestapo that he had simply been following orders and was released.  Szokoll was promoted to Major and was tasked with defending Vienna from the advancing Soviets.  In Spring 1945, Szokoll joined Operation Radetzky and became one of the key players.  For Operation Radetzky to succeed, Szokoll and other military commanders in Vienna needed to pretend they were making preparations to destroy the city, while actually making plans to save it from annihilation.  Szokoll worked closely with the Austrian Resistance group, the O5, to successfully contact Soviet leadership.  Separately, the Allies agreed to not bomb Vienna during the turnover.   TRAGEDY STRIKES On the evening of 4 April,  Major Karl Biedermann was betrayed and arrested by the Gestapo.  Biedermann’s role in Operation Radetzky, which had now been partially uncovered, was to secure the city’s bridges.  The Gestapo frantically investigated to determine the goals of Operation Radetzky.  The Operation continued as planned. On 5 April, Soviet planes dropped red flares to signal their arrival overhead.  The resistance fighters responded with green flares to mark the beginning of Operation Radetzky.  Lieutenant Rudolf Raschke, and Second Lieutenant Alfred Huth were arrested while trying to commandeer the Bisamberg radio tower on the northern edge of Vienna.  Szokoll was warned, evaded arrest and fled to the Soviet 9th Guards Army command post at Purkersdorf where he briefed the Soviets on the failure of the operation. On 8 April, the Nazis hung Biedermann, Raschke, and Huth from the lampposts at the Am Spitz square in Floridsdorf.  Signs attached to their bodies read “I have made a pact with the Bolsheviks.” SAVING VIENNA In addition to the planned surrender, Szokoll and his team provided the Soviets with the the German battle plans for the defense of Vienna as well as the locations of munitions and other key military details.  Suing this intelligence, the Soviets surprised the Nazis by advancing from the West and North rather than the South.  The Battle for Vienna lasted from 6-13 April 1945.  The rapid Soviet advance prevented the Nazis from creating a siege situation and saved numerous lives and the left Vienna largely intact. OPERATION RADETZKY MEMORIAL Today, the Operation Radetzky Memorial stands in the Am Spitz square to recognize the bravery of Major Karl Biederman, Lieutenant Rudolph Raschke, and Second Lieutenant Alfred Huth.  There is also plaque on the main entrance of the Town Hall in Am Spitz.    EPILOGUE After the war, Szokoll went on to start a film production company.  He is buried in the Central Cemetery of Vienna. Biedermann, Raschke, and Huth were cremated and had their remains buried on 2 August 1945 in Vienna in Hietzingen cemetery (group 66, row 19, number 5).
