Wehrmacht house Oirlo

In World War II, the Germans built checkpoints where they used large searchlights and radars to intercept Allied aircraft coming in from England to bomb the Ruhr area. Nearby was a small building to accommodate the six to eight Wehrmacht soldiers who were operating the checkpoint, hence the term ‘Wehrmacht house.’ Three such houses can be found in Venray: At Pauwweg in Oirlo, at Janslust in Heide, and at Overloonseweg in Venray. Even though most of the houses are run-down, they remain a special memento of World War II.

Address: Pauwweg 5, 5805 BM Oirlo
