Berlin, May 2011

Franz and Susanne are in town and we want to do some special sightseeing. This time an cold war artefact. A radar and listening station from the US and British allieds. It has been abondened about 20 years ago, vandalized and continous to crumble.

Recently a company started to offer guided tours there.
