The DDR - Revisited


The narrow bridge over the Werra has been demolished......the border defences at this time are mostly barbed wire (in the background) and run left and right along the river bank.

Another image from a slightly different angle.......a watch tower has been built on the DDR side of the river.

The area where the watch tower once stood.

A West German helicopter patrol flies in front of the village with the Brandenburg Castle on a hilltop.

A similar view today.......nature has healed the scars along the river bank.

A memorial plaque in the middle of the new bridge.

The 30th anniversary of the end of the border.

One of my favourite pieces of border art......with Brandenburg Castle in the background.
