A pity that it is private and abandoned. In the middle of the primitive path, do not miss it.

It is dull as it is preserved, but the stones speak of its long and important history. One of the most important battles of the High Middle Ages took place in those places. Without a doubt a place for lovers of history in times of the monarch Silo.

Little place to park, the access is between farms and the area is unmarked and unguarded. A shame, because it has a lot of potential, the remains that are completely covered with weeds, they seem interesting. The tower has no access. I think I remember that they do not advise approaching. The views from there, of the town, are spectacular.

It is not signposted. There is little place to park. You cannot visit the inside. It is a tower located in the middle of a field surrounded by houses. The tower from the outside looks well preserved.

Too bad not to invest in archaeological work because the result could be spectacular.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
