Haltepunkt Natur: Grenzturm Lenzen

Perspectives of the boarder at the Grünes Band (“green band”)

“Nobody intends to build a wall!” GDR chief of state and party leader Walter Ulbricht uttered this sentence on June 15, 1961 at a press conference. The boarder tower Lenzen is one of the many remnants that prove those words a lie. However, this isn't only a place of a dark past, but also a space that was left to nature for decades. Thus, a fascinating symbiosis between nature and history was created. Climb the historical tower and enjoy the view. Mind the wind.
