Teufelsberg means 'Devil's Mountain' in English, and an apt name it is for this abandoned Cold War listening station which overlooks Berlin, Germany. It is a favorite destination for urban explorers, but not the easiest place to access.
Like massive golf balls, the tattered shells of radomes long since left to the ravages of nature litter the landscape.

Now, graffiti besmirches the crumbling structures, but the views from this vantage point are nonetheless spectacular.The Presurfer
