Who would know there’s a real DDR watch tower hidden at the end of a small street off Potsdamer Platz? Well, a local Berliner would. Let one of our hosts share with you all the stories about the place!
By the fall of the DDR, there were more than 200 of these towers along the Berlin border — now there’s just this one. You can also climb this unique (and scary) Berlin attraction (for a small entry fee). In a similar vein there’s a reconstructed section of the wall and the no man’s land in Bernauer Straße — that was the scene of many dramatic escapes with people jumping from windows of houses, from East to West Berlin in the early days of Berlin’s division.
