The current camp in Prizren, located on the Eastern suburb of the city, has been used for military purposes since 1906, with soldiers of the Ottoman Empire being its first occupants. The German Bundeswehr started to use the camp in 1999. The size of the camp measures 392,542m². It had a total accommodation capacity of approximately 1600 soldiers. The owner of the camp is the Republic of Kosovo.

The current camp consists of an area of 39 hectares and had the capacities for accommodating 1600 soldiers. Since 1999, the German Bundeswehr has invested millions in reconstruction and new buildings which will now be handed over to the Government of Kosovo. These buildings include 23 accommodation houses, administrative buildings, maintenance buildings, workshop sheds, a sports facility, recreation facilities such as cafés and a church, a modern canteen and a hospital.

In 2016, the Kosovar and German Governments agreed to explore possibilities for the future use of the camp. The German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development asked GIZ to undertake a feasibility study, proposing a concept for civilian use of the current camp area. This study proposed to set up the Kosovar-German Innovation and Training Park (ITP) Prizren, which combines space for companies, vocational education and training, academic institutions, government institutions and non-governmental organizations.
