Many significant remnants and traces of the inner city border fortifications run almost continuously parallel to the S-Bahn track from Hertzstraße to the S-Bahn station of Wollankstraße. In the northern part of this area, between Hertzstraße and Schützenstraße, the width of the former death strip is clearly visible, as an urban void it still separates the districts of Reinickendorf and Pankow. The entire area is overgrown by vegetation, some trees having reached a height of up to ten meters. Along the street 'Am Bürgerpark' and parallel to Cemetery III, the longest section of light strip of the inner city area still exists, consisting of eighteen lamp posts. In the adjacent area to the south, between the S-Bahn track at the S-Bahn station Wollankstraße and the apartment buildings of the Schulzestraße, one can see what the former border fortifications looked like. Here the former patrol track with original lamps of the light strip is still extant as a recognisable unit, complemented by further remnants of the border fortifications.
