Tons of grenades from the imperial era have been discovered on the site of the former Berlin airport in Tegel. 28474314, as Tegel Projekt GmbH announced on Friday.
The police immediately took the heavy projectiles to a detonation site in Grunewald to be defused there.
“In all likelihood, the grenades are not war munitions,” said Alexander Döring, the site manager for explosive ordnance clearance.
Accordingly, they are rather test objects of the Prussian army. The find is unique for him on this scale.
Bombs or other explosive devices are repeatedly discovered in Berlin.
