Mödlareuth Things to Do: 4 reviews and 9 photos
When Mödlareuth, don't make the mistake of just visiting the museum. All over the town are signs with pictures of how the town used to look before and during the german separation. It's hard to believe today that the stream in the middle of town(I'd call it a ditch) was the border between east and west. On the west side of town is the site of the town mill which was levelled to give the guards clear line of sight along the border. The family fled to the west by jumping out the back window of their house! Past the mill site is a long section of fence that is the beginning of a 5km trail along the former border.
