From the Kanonenberge view you have a beautiful view of the Müggelberge and the Müggelberg. There is enough space up here for a picnic, and campfires are sometimes made here. I've even seen a wizard and witch meeting here. During the day it all seemed quite harmless ...
The Kanonenberge are an old disused gravel pit that was actually still used in the German Empire for testing cannons and weapons. Cartridge cases and other remains could be found there until the 1970s. The basin was a large meadow until the end of the 1980s and is now heavily overgrown.

Hello, Berlin2007: You are a little wrong with the Bismarck Tower. It was about two kilometers to the east, almost halfway between the small and the large Müggelberg. In the place of the Bismarckwarte stands the foundation for the Müggelberge TV tower, which was used for telephone monitoring in GDR times.
The Bismarck Tower was actually blown up by Volkssturm people at the beginning of 1945, as were various church towers in east Berlin.
