Its absolutely stunning, and eerie, and the echoes in the radar towers caused me to revise the echo-quality scale, giving this a 10 and all other previously experienced awesome echos a score between 0.5 and 1.5

Its in a forest in West Berlin, they built this hill on top of a nazi bunker, using rubble from homes destroyed in WW2, and the US & Brits used it to spy on East Berlin. Now its a ruin, you have to sneak through the fence and past security, but the views over berlin, graffiti art and echoes (of sound and of the past, ah yeah) make it all worthwhile
