Abandoned Berlin Station

This time instead of the usual in 

Berlin

KaDeWe 

and Ku’damm I hung about unexplored corners. I visited the Teufelsberg - the Devil's mountain assembled out of the remnants of residential buildings that were brought to this place after the war. I also explored the abandoned train station ( Wernerwerk). We got to both places through the holes in the fence, hiding from the police. Such an interesting experience...

After the war, a ski lift was built on the Teufelsberg, but the British noticed that this place was good for listening to the 'Soviets in the East'. They closed the lift and built a wiretapping station. Now everything stopped and it's really problematic to get there - it's a private property. We had a long walk around the fence, trying to find a 'fresh' hole. This place constantly attracts fans of everything abandoned, and the owners do not have time to patch the holes in the wire fence.

We found good views of Berlin on the way:

Finally, we got inside:

Once we got inside and were ready to go upstairs, a watchman appeared and drove us out. Locals say he comes there once a week. We were not lucky. At least, he didn't call the police...

Another attempt to feel ourselves like pioneers, getting in someone else's garden, we took in the abandoned Wernerwerk station. Siemensbahn line was built for employees to get to work from 

Berlin

. After the war, Siemens moved its headquarters to Munich, and passenger traffic greatly decreased, making the line unprofitable.

First, we crawled under the fence with barbed wire, and then under the gate through the hole for guard dogs. We walked half a kilometer to the station, ducking and hiding from the police behind stunted birches:

We went behind the station to an abandoned bridge across the river:
