The Abandoned Cold War Listening Station



On a hill called Teufelsberg (Devil's Mountain) near Berlin, an abandoned facility complete with "radar domes" stands. It was once used as a listening station for the US to intercept Soviet communications, and then abandoned when West and East Berlin were reunited. It was built over top the remains of a Nazi war college. Exploring this station is difficult, as it is deteriorating. One of the dangers is an open 10-story elevator shaft! See a set of pictures at Environmental Graffiti. Link

I've been there in June and exploration is not as difficult as it may seem. It's a great place with interesting stories. I've shot a few 360° images, feel free to use:
