Berlin Fun Fact: Teufelsberg

Today I was wandering round Grunewald, a large forested park at the western edge of Berlin. One of our destinations was Teufelsberg (Devil's Mountain). I gather there was something of a hill there to begin with, but after WWII, it was the place where 12 million cubic meters of debris from 400,000 bombed buildings was dumped. From afar, it looks like a forested hill. From up close, you can see that the stones are bricks, tiles, and the like.
