The 2013 Berlin Festival of lights and the peaceful protests of the ‘refugees without status’
Krampnitz was a German military barracks used by the Nazi’s during WWII. It was captured and taken over by the Russians just one day after the Germans fled in April 1945. It has since been used for filming Enemy at the Gates and Inglourious Basterds and now lies derelict and abandoned.
This is the bunker complex from where Admiral Karl Dönitz commanded the German U-Boat’s towards the end of WWII. It is now mostly derelict, but the underground bunker remains intact if you can find the small concealed entrance in the woodland.
NSA Field Station Teufelsberg, once part of the Echelon spy network listening to the soviets just a few miles away in East Germany, now lies derelict and in a state of disrepair.
Beelitz Heilstätten, home to the imperial German Army, the Red Cross, where Adolf Hitler was treated during the battle of the Somme, the stalking grounds for a sadistic serial killer and shelter for Erich Honecker under the protection of the Soviets when the Berlin wall came down. This abandoned place has a storey to tell.
From 1963 to 1992 NSA Spy Station Teufelsberg listened in to Soviet Union radio signals as part of the Echelon cold war spy network for the UK and USA. Now it stands on the highest hill in West Berlin derelict and abandoned.
