Deserted barracks of the former border guards/Ruppiner Chaussee

One of the few places along the ghost Wall where one has a direct and poignant sense of the loss of lives and oppressive years. The barracks have been vandalised and are empty. The CDU (Christian Democratic Union) have demanded that the owners of the barracks areal bring it into an acceptable state, on the grounds that visitors arriving in Hennigsdorf receive a bad first impression of the town. Nevertheless, the reason that the barracks and towering chimneys of its heating system, as well as the garages that once housed the guard patrol vehicles make such an impact is due to the state that they have been left in.
