Old East-West German border is now a green oasis

A physical border between East and West was first built in 1952, nine years before the Berlin Wall. Eventually the border included not only the death strip, but also barbed-wire fences, watch towers and a concrete ditch meant to stop vehicles.

At its peak, the East deployed some 44,000 soldiers to protect its boundaries and prevent flight.

It is like Teutoburg and Hurtgen Forests were combined and formed into an eco-friendly defensive line. At last the Werwolf have their dedicated MDL.

As long as they removed all of the land mines, that might make walking the area a little exciting!

At this day and age you would expect lots of drone photos in this kind of article, and there are none. What's wrong with those people?

Maybe the hawks and eagles attacked the drones?
