The clearing left by the former border fortifications between the districts Rudow and Altglienicke is clearly evident in the area between Hornkleepfad and Waltersdorfer Chaussee. However, the former death strip is presently being prepared for the new construction of the Autobahn 113. Numerous construction sites and earth removal procedures are reshaping the area. Although the barriers of the former death strip have been largely removed in this section, numerous remnants and traces of the Berlin Wall still exist. The former patrol track passes through virtually the entire area with few interruptions.
