Berlin’s Teufelsberg – the dilapidated ex-US spy station on the summit of the second highest elevation in the city rises out of nowhere as if it were from another world. From the Teufelsberg, you will have a great view over the Grunewald and the adjacent urban areas and it’s an absolute MUST for street-art lovers!
Walk up to the Teufelsberg from Grunewald S-Bahn station, it takes around 30 mins on easy terrain through the beautiful Grunewald forest. The ex-spy station area which is built upon this hill, made of rubble from World War II is now home to one of the world’s largest street-art exhibitions. The art exhibition is well worth a visit because of the lovely walk to the top, the views, the unique location, and the exquisite art which awaits you.
According to the exhibition website
‚Artists from all over the world painted at Teufelsberg. We value free speech and do not restrict any artist in their creative direction. This tenet creates a multitude of moods and political views on-site.‘ (source: https://www.teufelsberg-berlin.de/).
Entry costs 8€ per adult and children under 14 years are free.
