Krupp Steel Works - then and now.

Postby Dave_Holden » Thu Mar 26, 2020 2:55 pm

Hello all.

Found the below little gem from a very early morning bike ride. This was the main Krupp Steel Works machine shop, just imagine the stuff that passed through here. Its now turned into a car park for Ikea. I am going to go back in the next few days and see if there is any evidence where the machines stood:

Very interesting pictures Dave, especially with the original bridges in the back ground.

Thanks for comments Pete. It is the original bridge and the big building used to be a turbine shop, it's now a theatre. Once we are allowed I plan to go to see a show as the internal is supposed to have much of the original architecture. I will try and find a photo from the www.

Didn't they make Panthers there?

You can almost see them lined up, waiting to be fitted up with the engines and other pieces.

They certainly did make both Tigers and Panzers at the Krupp works Pete. Aircraft parts too, I believe engines amongst them - I will try to do a little more research. Three more photos below from inside the old machine room. Nice to see they have left a couple of items from the past:
