  • We found this in the guide that we got with our Berlin travel card it was listed on a tour near the Potsdam Platz. I wasn’t expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. It is the last of the 200 guard...  more »
  • What should you write about a watchtower? The tower stands in a quiet street. Few other tourists. He is part of German history.

  • Just down a little side street, what a treat. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. A really interesting tower that you can climb up, the last standing. Well worth the visit.  more »

  • Interesting piece of history here. Not too much to see, the tower itself is small, but you get some extra information from the person standing outside. Also I like supporting smaller attractions like this, and not just the big mainstream ones.
  • Old watch tower, used to watch the "dead zone" of the Berlin wall. The tower itself is quite hidden between the trees and relatively small. You can access the little tower for a small fee. It's funny to go inside the little tower but there's not much spectacular about the inside. However, the guide at the tower was very knowledgeable and told us(in German)some interesting facts about the tower and the wall. The information we received from the guide honestly made it worth paying the small fee.
  • There a 2 left in Berlin, this is the only one accessable! It is kept running by private initiatives so definitely visit ! :) It's free but you can donate.
  • Not very big and difficult to locate. You can go inside the tower for a fee.
  • Very interesting, volunteers were extremely knowledgeable. If you want to know more about the Berlin Wall and the East/West Border it is definitely worth visiting when in Berlin
