Teufelsberg in Berlin is situated in the West of Berlin in Grunewald. A quick trip on the S-Bahn and a nice walk through the woods will take you to the Devil’s Hill.

Teufelsberg in Berlin is approximately 80 m above sea level and has been erected with debris from WWII. While there are plenty of rubble mounds like this all over Germany, Teufelsberg is the only one to cover up the Wehrtechnische Fakultät. This under-construction Nazi college was supposed to educate in military and science; designed by Albert Speer. The college had never been finished.

During the Cold War the area had been used by the Allies to spy on the East. The NSA built structures and antennas designed to process information. Like, lots of it.

Some people even believe Teufelsberg covered up a secret submarine base. While street art fans will have a blast here anyways, I highly recommend to take a guided historical tour. The 5 Euros to get in help to keep the place safe.

You can find those pieces all over the place. Once, the city funded them, now the art is just rotting away.

There is also a nice bar up there, in case you need a rest. Rumors go, in about half a year people will be allowed to go up the tower again, fingers crossed.

If you go up in hot weather, feel free to dip into Teufelssee to refresh. Do not worry if you didn’t bring those bathers, as most people go skinny dipping. Hey, you’re in Germany here.

Thanks for visiting!
