SCP Foundation Facility Dossier


Official Designation: Coastal Site-DE16

Site Identification Code: EXR-DE16

General information


Usage: Site-DE16 is the Germanophone Foundation's shipping hub in the Baltic Sea, monitoring aquatic anomalies in German state waters. Due to its relatively isolated location, anomalies originating from other realities are also contained here, as the environmental conditions make their escape more difficult.

Founded: 11. March 1995

Location: Wustrow Penisula and the Salzhaff

Cover: Restricted military area/private property of Deutsche Immobilien Gruppe

Function: Germanophone Foundation's logistics center in the Baltic Sea, monitoring of anomalies in the Baltic Sea, containment of extra-real anomalies.

Size: 60.000 m2 above ground, 350.000 m2 subterranean


Designation Ort
DE16/000 Wismar

Above ground Structure


Closed access road to Site-DE16.

Main Access: The main access of Site-DE16 is located in West Rerik on the Wustrow Peninsula and is normally only accessible by helicopter, although an access road exists but is rarely used for secrecy reasons. It is hidden in one of the numerous ruins and is guarded by stationary units only at its lower end. Any aircraft can be transported separately to the site via a camouflaged freight elevator.

  • Guard Post Staff: A guard room is established underground at the entrance to Site-DE16, where the access tunnels converge, and is manned by at least three guards at all times. They are all equipped with one HK SFP9, pepper spray, taser pistols and telescopic baton each, and have access to three HK MP5N submachine guns in case of emergency. Access is secured with multiple drop bulkheads to prevent unauthorized access even by heavy vehicles.

Side Accesses: Site-DE16 has the most extensive tunnel system of any Germanophone Foundation site. There are numerous access tunnels with entrances in Rerik, Neubukow and Kühlungsborn. The largest and longest tunnel, however, connects Site-DE16 with Outpost-DE16/000 in Wismar, which serves as the port of transshipment for the Germanophone Foundation in the Baltic Sea. All tunnels can be buried in an emergency, but the Outpost-DE16/000 tunnel is additionally secured with steel bulkheads, as it is mainly used by freight trains. There are also emergency exits throughout the site-DE16 on Wustrow, which are normally hidden and sealed.

Main Site: Site-DE16 occupies the area of Rerik-West as well as part of the site to the west. The boundaries are secured by a steel fence, which are marked with munitions load warning signs. The site itself is constantly patrolled by units of RTF DE16-𝔖 (16-Sabine "Ruinengänger" (i.e. Ruin Walkers), supported by camouflaged automatic gun turrets with KBA machine canons that extend from the ground. These have shape and motion detection so that they fire only at intruders and not at people or local fauna stored in their memory. They can be temporarily disabled if necessary.

Testing Area: To the west of the site, an undeveloped area has been designated as a test area and is enclosed by a three meter high wall. Individually remotely detonatable mines are buried at regular intervals throughout the area, and automatic gun turrets with KBA machine guns on the inside of the wall provide additional security. Anomalies are introduced through an elevator in the center of the site, tests then begin after a short acclimatization period.

Subterranean Structure

Site-DE16 is a bunker facility that has been expanded over the years. It now covers large parts of the Wustrow peninsula and even extends below the Salzhaff. There is only one central freight elevator and a fire escape, as further elevators are impractical due to the branching corridors.


Access to the administration of Site-DE16.

  • Basement Floor 1: This floor houses the staff quarters, site administration, administration, server rooms, infirmary and barracks of RTF DE16-𝔖 and MTFs based at this location. Due to access to Wismar and surrounding villages, recreational facilities here are limited to a bowling alley, fitness center and small movie theater. The administration and server rooms are secured with particularly thick walls and have their own emergency exit. Site-DE16 has an underground helicopter hangar, which transports aircraft via a rail system to the take-off hatch, which is normally closed and camouflaged and only opened during takeoff or landing.
  • Basement Floor 2: This floor contains the archives and research facilities of Site-DE16. Due to its specialization, Site-DE16 has developed capabilities regarding spatio- and ontophysics and several test chambers secured with Scranton reality anchors. This level also houses the site's nuclear reactor, which is specially secured by reinforced walls and steel bulkheads. It is cooled by seawater.
  • Basement Floor 3: This floor contains the storage rooms and the station for the underground magnetic train that connects Site-DE16 with Site-DE12 and Site-DE23. Like the surface, the station is defended with automatic gun turrets and the train tunnels have steel bulkheads to prevent escape or anomalies from entering.

Corridor with accesses to containment chambers in Site-DE16.

  • Basement Floor 4-6: These floors are located several hundred meters below the earth's surface and are used for anomaly containment. Unlike other sites, the containment difficulty increases not with the floor number but with the distance from the elevator, since these floors are located under the salt marsh and thus can easily be flooded in an emergency. The use of flash cement is also possible to prevent anomalies from breaking out that are unaffected by water. Containment cells and individual floor sections can be individually buried, flooded or cemented in an emergency. There is also the possibility of introducing poison gas or turning off the ventilation system. Some areas have reality stabilized by reality anchors to hold anomalies capable of interreal transfers. Containment cells can be set up quickly due to their construction, but new ones can be build if needed. The corridors are patrolled throughout by RTF DE16-𝔖. They are equipped with an HK SFP9, but additionally carry either a Remington 870 shotgun or a G27 assault rifle. Heavier armament is available at the barracks.

Additional Information

Site DE16 had been planned by the Foundation since the Reunification in 1990 to efficiently contain extra-real anomalies, as organisms from other realities in particular posed a threat to indigenous ecosystems. However, delays in negotiations ensured that Soviet forces were not completely withdrawn until 1994. Since the Federal Republic of Germany feared a munitions load, the Foundation offered to buy the area from it. The government agreed to the offer. To provide better cover, a deal was negotiated in 1998 with the Fundus-Gruppe, which has since claimed and managed the Wustrow Peninsula as private property. This practice has continued since its acquisition by the Deutsche Immobilien Gruppe in 2015.

During an investigation of the site, an entrance to an underground bunker was discovered. Although it was initially thought to date from the World War II era, surveyors determined that the facility was a Soviet construction, presumably built by the Red Army. After a thorough investigation, it was decided to continue using this bunker facility, as the Foundation had already planned to build a bunker. The facility was then converted to a habitable condition and became operational in 1996 as a containment facility for extra-real anomalies.

In 1998, during the expansion of the facility, a bricked-up tunnel was discovered that led directly to Wismar. The tunnel ended under an abandoned warehouse that had formerly been used by Soviet forces. The Foundation then acquired the site, laid tracks in the tunnel, and from then on used the newly fortified DE16/000 outpost as a transshipment point for resources in the Baltic Sea. Over the years, other tunnels were added and gradually fortified.

From 2002 to 2008, artist Günther Uecker was allowed to inhabit a cottage on Wustrow as part of a containment project, with the existence of the Foundation having to be regularly removed from his memory. With the end of the project in 2008, he was banned from the island by the responsible district office under the pretext of a ban.

In 2009, Research Team 25 provided an explanation for the existence of the bunker. The GDR's state leadership had commissioned Division XXV to investigate after other state organs noticed tunneling to Wismar and a transfer of anomalies, and Soviet diplomats either did not answer inquiries or claimed to know nothing about such activities. According to the findings of Division XXV, the use of West Rerik as a training ground was only a pretext, since a unit of GRU Division "P" was present here, which had built the bunker in order to store anomalies recovered in the GDR in it and ship them from Wismar to the Soviet Union. It paid special attention to SKP remnants and conducted partial tests on the peninsula. Foundation contacts at GRU Division "P" later confirmed these findings; however, many of the anomalies were lost when the division was restructured after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Their whereabouts are unknown to date.
