|Hot Spot in the cold war.|
Point Alpha is located on the border between Hessen and Thuringia between Rasdorf and Geisa in the Rhoen Mountains. Located in the middle of nature-preserve Rhoen and other nature sanctuaries, this historic facility with its authentic buildings and grounds is a reminder of the partition of Germany and the horrors of the Cold War. The entire complex is a unique witness of the power struggle between two political systems. Here outposts of NATO and Warsaw Pact stood facing each other.
