Following the course of the former border fortifications from Oberbaumbrücke along the Osthafen up to Lohmühlenbrücke one encounters significant architectural remnants of the Berlin Wall. Among them are the well-known watchtower at Schlesischer Busch and the barrier of the former border crossing for ships at the Flutgraben canal, which flows from the river Spree to the Landwehrkanal in Kreuzberg. The barrier, a T-shaped iron landing bridge in front of the west quay of the Spree river, was connected to the quay. Border soldiers patrolled it and carried out customs duties. The barrier, set on concrete pillars in the river bed, extended in two separate sections up to the vicinity of Oberbaumbrücke, thus blocking access to West Berlin over a large area.
