A major disappointment. Fair enough, an interesting Lost place from the Cold War era. But the entrance price is too high to see unexplained and unmaintained vestiges. Of the 3 explanation billboards, 2 were unreadable due to darkness, more space is given to graffiti art than to the historic perspective. If you dare go on top, you will experience a fantastic view onto Berlin. The place is unsuitable for the physically disabled and the walking impaired (not a single bench to rest on the whole site). Can you imagine: we bought a guided tour online and had to buy entrance tickets on top at the gate. To me a money-making rip-off.

An important cold war relic. If the graffiti and entry fee don't appeal it is visible from the S Bahn on route to Olympic Stadium.

This was sooo great!! We had booked the tickets last minute on-line, went by the subway to the Grunewald station and then we walked. Beautiful autumn walk, very few people, took us about half an hour to get there. Got there, we had bought the tickets that were without a guide, which we later found sufficient. We were just so mesmerized, I don’t think we’d remember anything. The balance between the beautiful nature and the sprayed and destroyed remnants of the Cold War is simply implacable. The art was everything, very realistic, some with deeper meaning, some just for the joke. True masterpieces.

This is a place you have to visit when in Berlin. Great street art, run down spy facilities from the Cold War - lots to see for everyone

We recommend taking the one hour guided tour in English; tickets for admission and the tour can be purchased on site. What made our visit memorable was that our tour guide was a former US Army intelligence officer who worked at the listening station in the 1970s. His stories gave us a sense of how a listening station works and also conveyed the sense of mission felt by military personnel at the time and how they were perceived by the residents of West Berlin. He threw in a few good spy stories, and gave us ample time to visit the street art that now occupies the site. If you arrive by taxi, the driver can drop you off at the entrance, and you won't need to climb the hill. It would be a good idea to bring mosquito repellent if you are visiting in August, as it can be a little buggy (in the insect sense of the word)!

We loved this, such an interesting place and the views of the city were immense, worth it for that alone. Easy enough to get to on the train but then a fair walk and uphill - probably an hour, so you have to have your own transport or be serious about going.

Far from downtown,inside a local park and not so easy to be reached once you are in the park,but the experience is totally worth if you like street art.
Many graffiti of very good artists in a large space,distributed in many buildings.
Important tip: bring your own snacks and beverages,cause there's no cafeteria or something like this there.

Urban exploration photography of derelict places is my passion and although this is now a pay to enter site, I loved having the chance to explore it and see all the artwork. It's a good entry level explore for those who like to do things legally.

Such an awesome place which I could have spent much more time exploring, but we ran out of daylight.

The walk back to the train station was long, especially in the cold, wet weather, so be prepared if you don't have a vehicle.

If you are into decay and abandoned places, and long walks in a forest after this is definitely worth a day trip.
If old spy stations and a little bit of war history intrigues you, don’t miss it.
If you are into Grafiti or just like looking, there is so much to see here.
Ps there is also a nude friendly pond near by if that is your thing…. Or longs walks in nature ;-)

Teufelsberg was hands down my favourite experience of my whole time in Berlin. It may be a bit out of the city centre (1 hour total journey or so, including train and a bit of a walk) but it was actually quite nice to get out into the open of the forest and escape the city for a bit and it is DEFINITELY WORTH IT! There is a lot of interesting graffiti art in the abandoned spy base, and the views from the roof are just incredible. We went late in the evening in summer as we wanted to see the sunset (apparently it's one of the best spots in Berlin to see it). My friend wanted to leave before the sun had set but I liked it so much I shall definitely be going back :) They change the closing time depending on when the sunset is, with last entry being around 1 hour before sunset. You will need to take cash as they don't accept card but there is no need to book in advance. Also be prepared to smell at least some weed as a lot of people seem to be smoking it up there, but it's not too much of a problem!
