Teufelsberg is open!

Teufelsberg (German for Devil’s Mountain) is a hill in Berlin and is in my top 5 recommended places to check out for people visiting the city. The hill, like all hills in Berlin which is a naturally flat area, is made up of the rubble from WWII. This one is extra special however as it also buries a never finished Nazi military-technical college. A perfectly good reason to name something “Devil’s”.

And that’s just the hill.

Teufelsberg’s main attraction is the abandoned US Cold War spy tower, which over the years has become a gallery of street art and squat activity. Up until April 2017 you had to climb a fence and watch out for guard dogs to admire the work, but recently they open the area up to visitors for an 8 EUR fee.  Much like Pfaueninsel this is extremely good value for money, and far more interesting that the usual tourist hot spots.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
