  • Immerse yourself in history and hear about everything from the imperial age to the Third Reich to the Cold War to today
  • Marvel at street art off the beaten track, and explore the former closely-guarded, prohibited military zone

Discover Teufelsberg in Grunewald, which offers a stunning view from 120 meters high. Learn all about the history of the listening station, including who was eavesdropping and what they heard, and see the highest cupola in Berlin
What to Expect
Experience a 2-tour historical tour and learn all about Teufelsberg and its past, from the time of the Kaisers to the present day. Let your guide lead you around sections of the former listening station and experience how the allies eavesdropped on the East, where Berlin's Ski World Cup took place, and what you can find in the ruins of old Berlin. Highlights include a unique view from the highest "mountain" in the city and the fascinating acoustics of the radar dome.

Enjoy the opportunity to gain insight into the complexity and the astounding architecture of the Field Station on this 1-hour silent tour. Explanation of the premises is reserved for the historical tour. In a group with your guide, visit the casino, pass the research tower, and go over two work platforms onto the plateau of the Central Unit to get to the tower.

The tour ends in the highest cupola of Berlin and offers a unique look at the silhouette of Brandenburg. The acoustics of the Central Unit's cupola is unique not only in Berlin but worldwide.
