Artillery Fort Nussloch - Mastrils

This small fort had only one 7.5 cm caliber gun, two observer stands and a lodging. The entrance is 75 m above the Rhine Valley. A 320 m long narrow dirt road with a gradient of 21% leads to a farmhouse below the entrance. There is no other access. The fort was built at the beginning of World War II. According to the current owner, it was already completed in 1940. Although it is situated on territory of the canton of Graubünden, it belonged to the fortress Sargans and was part of the southern front. The mountain crest with this rock was named on older maps as Schnetzerwand. Switzerland, April 16, 2013. (1/14)
