Tree trunk seats on the Britzer Zweigkanal

Along this stretch of the former Wall, on the East side of the canal, are a number of sites where wood has been used for constructions to climb on, for plants to grow over, or for people to sit on. Close by stands the memorial to Chris Gueffroy, who was only 20 years old when he was killed attempting to escape the GDR. He had been told by a border guard whom he knew that the order to shoot had been suspended. He was the last victim before the Wall was opened nine months later.
