destination teufelsberg

the dome

finally i made it to the teufelsberg in berlin grunewald. on top of this artificial hill made of rubble after world war II lies hidden in the woods an abandoned nsa listening station. this station can be visited and one can enjoy the location and the view over berlin and grunewald. for more information on the teufelsberg (devil’s mountain) you can either check wikipedia or abandoned berlin or the rest of the internet of course.

i was really lucky with the weather and had some serious fun there. i took part in one of the official tours,though. otherwise my heart probably  would have stopped beating in excitement…

besides the quite spectacular location i loved the wild sounds the wind made in the torn cloth covers of the towers.

the place is covered with some not so great and some fantastic street art. some of the latter will be featured in another post.

on a more technical note: all shots have been taken with the e-p5 and a handful of lenses, e.g. the panaleica 25mm and the lumix 14mm with gwc-1 conversion lens attached. the last one was made with the m.zuiko 40-150mm

  1. I’ve heard of this place before, now I see that I will have to pay a visit there! So far I’m left with no working camera in Berlin. I knew I forgot about something when packing;) Love the black triangle and the net photos!
