Baltic Border Tower  Kühlungsborn

Baltic Border Tower Kühlungsborn

Stephanie L.
Description
In 1972 this GDR border watchtower (BT11) was erected at Kühlungsborn / Baltic Sea. From the 15 meter high lookout the border guards could search a 12 sea miles wide area. --- The Baltic Border Tower is now like a museum, run by a society, which preserved or reconstructed its original equipment and a unique place where the history of the divided Germany can be experienced authentically. You can climb up to the top of the tower to view over the wide horizon of the Baltic Sea which used to be the border. Or learn more from a historically guided tour with inspection of the tower about the techniques of the border surveillance. ---- More information at the towers website: http://www.ostsee-grenzturm.com/ <p> Model © Stephanie Lange, more Berlin Wall Models: http://www.k-ita.de/~sl/berlin-wall/ #1961 #1972 #1989 #Ausstellung #Baltic_Sea #border #Border_Tower #Bordertower #BRD #BT_11 #BT11 #Cold_War #DDR #Deutschland #Eiserner_Vorhang #Europa #Europe #Exhibition #FRG #GDR #Germany #Grenze #Grenzturm #Grenzwachturm #Iron_Curtain #Kalter_Krieg #Kuehlungsborn #Kuhlungsborn #Kühlungsborn #Ostsee #Ostsee_Grenzturm #Wachturm #Watchtower
