I was sent as a teenager to school in Wien. The flak towers were intereisting to me. FLAK of course is "anti aircraft cannon". I was told this one; they tried to fill with explosives, which is why it has lots of craks all over it. I could see anotherone from my appartment on Marieahilf str. it was made into an aquarium. There was a youth hostil in the crews quarters outside and underground.
My time there made me addicted to Mozart :-)
Incredible place... :)
