AFP reports on a piece of Cold War surveillance history:

Perched atop a wooded Berlin hill, an abandoned Cold War listening post where Nato once eavesdropped on their communist foes is a reminder of Germany’s tumultuous past.

Today tourists flock to the conspicuous historical relic, known as Teufelsberg, or Devil’s Mountain, complete with its three white radar domes resembling giant golf balls.

But 25 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall — the ultimate Cold War icon, but which has now largely vanished — debate is underway over whether the ex-field station should be preserved as a memorial.
