Former Cold War-era NSA listening post overlooks Berlin

This hill in western Berlin was actually created from all of the rubble left over after Allied bombings in World War II. It stands 180 feet tall and contains 420 million cubic feet of debris.

You might be wondering about those three white radome “balls” sitting atop Teufelsberg. During the Cold War, the U.S. constructed an NSA listening station here to conduct surveillance of the Soviet Union’s presence in East Berlin. Talk about spy games!

After being closed off for years, the area is now open to visitors and is adorned with elaborate and impressive works of graffiti.
