Construction of the airfield began in 1936 with the building of three runways, taxiways and a railway connection. The first assignment was in August 1939 with the staff and the I group ZG 26 Horst Wessel. After the war the airfield installations were blown up by Danish units. In the accommodation blocks Russian prisoners of war and Polish families were housed. It is now a military training area. http://www.fliegerhorste.de/varel.htm
