Hiking up to the Devils Mountain, graffiti paradise

Are you ready for a hike to the Dragons Mountain or are you the person waiting for the sequel premiere of how to train your dragon. Let me tell you I am both.
It was a great Excursion on a Saturday, though the weather could have been better.
It is no joke that the mountain is literally known as Devil’s Mountain and Devil’s Lake, though Dragons Mountain is common likewise. It is pretty much the largest hill in Berlin, a miniature manmade mountain from a pile of rubble from WWII ” trummerbergs ”.
Standing on top of the Teufelsberg you can see the entire panoramic landscape.

In the early 60s Americans had their radars and NSA station there.

Now after the reunion a big magnate thought to build large lofts and double maisonette but his project failed.
It is now a privately owned space where you can see how nature recovered by itself without the need of a human need. Other forms include artistic Street art of international artists which lay their piece of artwork onto the ruins.

The place has transformed into a graffiti paradise where artists let their artwork speak for itself.

Without doubt never have I seen so much beautifully designed graffiti art, as it is now on display in the ruins of the old NSA radar station.
