Teufelsburg, Germany

The Teufelsberg (Or -“Devil’s Mountain” in German) is a hill located  in Berlin,  Germany. On top of Teufelsberg there is an abandoned British GCHQ site, abandoned  around the late 1970’s.  At the time, the building and huge domes (kinda looks like giant golf balls) were used for listening and intercepting radio signals. Today however, the buildings remain standing, yet clearly rundown.  What makes the site so unique is that graffiti artists have covered every inch with beautiful artwork.  Those wishing to visit the site can either sneak in, or (unfortunately) at times a group of people claiming to ‘own’ the site will stand at the front gate and charge an entrance fee.  Regardless of how you get in, the history and eeriness, combined with the modern graffiti art that is symbolic of Berlin’s culture, truly create a unique urban exploration experience.  There are many amazing abandoned sites in the world, but this place sure does draw a crowd!
