Here I had a lot of pictures that I can't find now, of course. Fallow deer, approx. 25, almost tame. Also the bus stop, by the church, where bus 666 stops (raised the dilemma with the numbers with the priest at the gym but it resulted in nothing-- Kjell is the priest's name, nice guy f.ö) Deja vu now, have I posted pictures before? Surroundings with hills and flows do not go off for hoes.

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.
