Point Alpha

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.
