Lilienthal Park and the Fliegeberg

-----
Hidden among suburban streets in the south of Berlin, there is an unexpected sight. To some, it might look like an ancient burial ground from an alien like civilization or a burial ground from some ancient tribe. But the weird looking hill that lies in Lichterfelde is a part of the memorial park to Otto Lilienthal, one of Germany's aviation pioneers.

Lilienthal Park is the name of the park and the Fliegeberg is the name of that hill that is part of the aviation history in Germany. It was there that, in 1894, Otto Lilienthal started doing his gliding experiments in Berlin. You probably read his name around Berlin a few times since the Berlin's busiest airport, Berlin Tegel "Otto Lilienthal" Airport, is named after him.
