Traces of the Past along the German Green Belt


Historical research has shown that this border cost at least 900 human lives. Today it is a peaceful trace in the landscape. However, without the former border fortifications, the fences and watchtowers, this trace of the past is often difficult to detect at first glance.

Certain questions immediately spring to mind when visiting the Green Belt: Where exactly was the border? Why is there a row of trees here? Where was the fence? Where were the landmines laid? This brochure is intended to assist you in your search for traces of the past in one of Germany's most moving commemorative landscapes!
