The Günter Litfin Memorial
On the tour participants learn the little-known story of Günter Litfin and his brother Jürgen Litfin. After 1989 Jürgen Litfin saved the command post from falling into decay and being demolished and created a memorial for his brother in the tower. The historical site is also used to explain how the GDR border regime functioned.
From May to October
