The former radar station from the Cold War era towers high above the city. If you don't want to see it from the outside, you can get legal access to the historical buildings by purchasing a ticket at teufelsberg-berlin.de. There are different price categories available, depending on whether you want to explore the site on your own or get more background information through a guided tour.
Opening times: Wednesday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Last entry at 7pm.

The listening station is a tourist stronghold. At the weekend it's teeming with people on the mountain. The complex itself is completely fenced and is about to disintegrate. On the site DDR-Devotionalien be hired for expensive money. This has very little to do with the original use of the mountain. You can go there well during the week. The question is whether to pay the entrance or just enjoy the good view. Good visibility set.

At the moment, at least, men don't get in here any more than women or dogs.
Although there must be loopholes somewhere, because on the other side of the double fence (with the 'death strip' in between) I definitely saw a young man climbing up the steep embankment, who answered something from a bridge to the site on request.
🤭 Very brave 😌

Unfortunately, for fire protection reasons, the "listening station towers" are no longer allowed to be entered ... this was conveyed to us at the ticket office by the "employees" responsible there ... Otherwise you can (after paying the entrance fee that if you are friendly (! !) hooks up, is quite negotiable) move freely on the site and explore everything. Dogs are welcome & welcome (attention: lots of broken glass!).
On the one hand there are many and some. really great graffities and then as a contrast, something strange works of art, where you don't know exactly, that belongs or can go away ;-)
Unfortunately, there are many unkempt corners on the entire site, some of which are are totally littered. This gives the whole area a somewhat sad touch and you worry about what the entrance fee will be used for ...
Conclusion: Gaffitis and the meanwhile very "tattered" towers are top, the rest "well" ...
A little tip: the Drachenberg is a few meters northeast. From there you have a sensational view over to the listening station ... and if you turn around you will find the whole of Berlin at your feet :-)
If you want to visit both mountains, use the parking lot Teufelsberg / Drachenberg, which is pretty much in the middle and is free of charge (March 2019)

The Grunewald is very beautiful and also the cemetery of the nameless. Nico is there. The Velvet Underground.
The listening station is no longer an abandoned place in the usual sense. I would compare it to the Tacheles. However, the tacheles was clean. There were no broken glass, glass bottles and rubbish in contrast to the listening station etc. The graffiti is nice. Entry is charged, allegedly for the preservation of the graffiti. All in all it remains a stale taste with so much dirt. Tourist nepp. Too bad.

"Teufelsberg development: In addition to the hotel and apartments, a beauty clinic and a wellness center are now planned."
This project was apparently put on hold ➖ but you can see the beginning of the development. That surely not only reminds me of the BER :))
