NSA Field Station
I visited this location really late in the night after a very exhausting urbex trip in Berlin this location I had too see in real life. It’s located at Teufelberg a hill that grew from dumping rubble from Berlin’s ruins in 1950. The construction started in 1937 but then World War II brake out and only the shell of the compound was finished. During the war the place was used to store ammo. Bombings damaged the buildings and the remains is what we see today.The NSA Field Station in Berlin on Teufelsberg was one of the premier listening posts of the cold war.
Situated on top of the highest point in West Berlin, the station had a very good reception of signals from all directions. And of course viewed from West Berlin, in all directions was to the East.The station was situated in the British sector of West Berlin, so the US services were technically a guest there.
The British armed forces had one building on the hill and a very high metal grid antenna tower that was removed around 1992, for their collection antennas.All buildings are connected by covered walkways, except the dining facility, the small Jamabalya radar tower and some minor outlaying utility constructions. Due to construction work, aimed at building expensive apartments in the area, some buildings were demolished.
I was really tired when I arrived there and walking inside the white balloon things gives u a strange feeling. It was really windy that day so I only took 3 pictures.
