This section extends from the Lohmühlenbrücke to the S-Bahn track at Kiefholzstraße and is characterized by numerous and significant remnants of the inner city border fortifications. Heidelberger Straße, for example, features one of the most repellent details of the inner city border - a deep trench that was part of the border fortifications. Due to the overall narrowness of the area, steel-nail grids and vehicle obstacles were used to make the death strip impassable. The section extends through a densely built-up area along Harzer Straße and Heidelberger Straße up to Treptower Straße. The course of the former border then becomes evident through an area of wasteland covered by spontaneous vegetation.
