Berlin within Brandenburg
In the state Brandenburg there exist specific places that have a certain relationship to Berlin.
Sommerswalde Palace was built by Richard Sommer, who owned expensive properties right next to the Brandenburger Gate in Berlin. Sommerswalde Palace looks like the Reichstag, the red brick horse stable is similar to the Red City Hall in the German capital.
Further to the north, there is Liebenberg-Estate. Here Count zu Eulenburg lived, a close friend and advisor of the Emperor Wilhelm II. Here the “Liebenberg Round Table” met, here the „Eulenburg-Affair“ took place that sent shockwaves across the German empire.
Closely, there is the Krämerwald-Forest. Here lies the „Second Berlin“: a huge decoy from 1942 called „V-500“. Bomberpilots of the enemies should think they already would overfly Berlin and would drop their deadly freight: the airport Tempelhof, the railroad yard Anhalten Bahnhof, the center of Berlin with Friedrichstraße and the river Spree were imitated by fake-buildings and other devices.
