    From up here the view over the large area is very impressive. The ringing of the bell goes through and through.

    "Tower of Freedom"
    Inside, under a bronze plate: earth and ashes from other concentration camps and terrorist sites. The meeting place served the GDR in mass rallies u. a. as a place of self-legitimation.
