Aerial view of Teltowkanal
The last section of Berlin’s Teltowkanal formed part of the border between the boroughs of Neukölln (former West Berlin) and Treptow-Köpenick (former East Berlin). The largest part of the 10-km Berlin section of the new A113 expressway now runs along the site of the GDR border fortifications on the eastern bank of the canal.

About the photos
In these aerial photos from 2005, the outer wall, built on the border to West Berlin, is marked in red, and the inner wall behind it in blue. The political border that was crucial to fugitives is shown in yellow wherever it deviates from the location of the outer wall.
