If you love exploring abandoned buildings & love street art Teufelsberg is where your heart is leading you. The buildings on Teufelsberg were a Cold War Spy Center after being a college campus that was never destroyed. Teufelsberg literally translates to Devils Mountain. The hill is made of nearly 500,000 bombed houses now in rubble from the war.
The charm of the semi dark and mysterious grounds gave an adventurous feel to my husband and me that we couldn't get just anywhere. The views at the top of the buildings are a bonus for any who are wanderlust. We personally enjoyed the graffiti the most and not knowing what masterpiece awaited us at the end of a corridor or hid in a discreet spot almost to be missed.
For your safety, I would suggest bringing a flashlight and wearing stable covered shoes (absolutely not sandals) because you will be walking through rubble and broken stairs at times. According to Joe de Visser, "In 2007, Gruhl & Partner nearly rented the mountain to the experimental film director David Lynch (Mulholland Drive, 2001). Lynch nearly signed a contract, till he realized that he and the supporting Maharishi Foundation wouldn’t be allowed to develop a ‘Peace University’ and to build a ‘Tower of German Invincibility’ – so Lynch refused." With Lynch being one of my favorite directors I found this really interesting.
