Towering Over A Berlin Wall Watchtower

June 1, 2013

While doing some quick research for my post on the Berlin Wall watchtower near Potsdamer Platz I came across an article in Slow Travel Berlin titled “The Hidden Watchtower”.  The next day, feet sore after six hours spent blissfully shuffling around all of Museum Insel and undeterred by the impending rain, I decided I still had some exploring left do to.

The rain and November-like weather must have muddled my sense of direction, and I took every wrong turn possible, but I finally found the tower. It seems so unimposing, harmless almost, now dwarfed by the cheery pink residential buildings that surround it on three sides.

The article is worth a read for one story from this watchtower’s past life.
