Miscellaneous Palmnicken

The East Prussian spa resort of Palmnicken was used for pre-war glider flying. Gilder flying from this location appears to have continued intermittently during the war years. Does anyone have any helpful background information on the 'airfield' and associated facilities? Do any photos exist?

Just found an old map from Palmnicken here:

No glider field visible...but 1936 must have been too early

Thanks - very nice. It's not obvious looking at the map exactly where gliding activity took place. I'd venture relatively near to the coastline but I am by no means certain.
