Border Crossing Helmstedt - Marienborn
Checkpoint Alpha was located on the border between (former) East and West Germany. Unfortunately the USA side has almost disappeared, but on the east side is still a large part of the old border post. The official site is nice to see, but those who look a bit further off the beaten track will find even more! A few old watchtowers on the east side, some barrack, the drive-in roads from west to east and a border path between the wall and barbed wire.
