  • An important memorial, but I didn't think the watch tower had too much else going for it. Free to enter and climb a couple of stories of internal ladder to get to the top and try to imagine what it might have been like to either be a guard looking out or someone trying to cross the border. A few interesting displays on the walls, but not somewhere that needs much time to explore. Now surrounded by apartment buildings.
