The DDR - Revisited


The road leading down to Lankow

A detailed information board gives the full history of the village.

The former main street of Lankow.

Each boulder marks a building and gives details

The village was considered to be too near a sensitive water crossing point and, by 1976, all the buildings had been demolished (centre of the above image).

A tranquil location to sit under a tree and view the area where the border once crossed this water.

An image of the crossing taken from the information board.....the village was on the far bank.
