PC GER Berlin Gruenau Sport monument at Gruenau regatta course PU 1902

1000-m mark of the Gruenau regatta course.

It consisted mainly of boulders engraved with

the names of various German rowing clubs.

The monument was demolished in 1973 by

the GDR authorities who did not want to

preserve it.
