    The agent lock of Wendehausen (nomen est omen!) Dates back to the early 1980s and is said to have served to inject and disperse Stasi agents. It was camouflaged as a water passage, although there was really nothing to drain. Well.

    The tube served mainly that
    Locks of Stasi agents in the Federal Republic and back. This could happen largely unnoticed, as the ditch behind offered a certain amount of cover. Such locks were used to enable people to cross the border securely by conspiracy who, for various reasons, could not enter or leave the GDR via a border crossing point. In contrast to the gates in the border fences, the agent lock was not visible from the BGS or customs. (... from information board)

    An astonishing and remarkable object steeped in history, which on the one hand brings to mind the dark side of the German division.
    But also somehow fascinating when you consider that Stasi agents could get through this simple tube unnoticed from east to west and back again without being noticed.
