Between 1936 and 1945, The Peenemunde Historical Technical Museum stood as one of the world's most innovative technological facilities. The site of the world's first space missile launch in 1942, this military test site was made possible by the labor of slaves, concentration camp inmates, and prisoners of war. They worked under inhumane conditions to construct the test areas and produce the rockets that Nazis designed as part of the project code-named Vergeltungswaffe 2 (Vengeance Weapon 2). Today, the site exists as a museum dedicated to these laborers and to the Belgian, British, and French citizens killed by the aerial weapons produced here. Exhibits, documents, and films trace the historical development of rocketry and the lives of the forced laborers. Replicas include the V-1 flying bomb (Fieseler Fi 103) and the A4 rocket. An onsite chapel commemorates the victims claimed by the weapons. To visit The Peenemunde Historical Technical Museum and other attractions in Peenemunde, use our Peenemunde trip itinerary planner.
