After that is was abandoned untill "Cobra 11" came....Just north of this locations along the A115 in service stands the building that was used as police-station of Cobra 11.
Also often used was roadside-restaurant "Stolper Heide" along the highway A111 in the northwest of Berlin. This also was a roadside-restaurant which wasn't used.Drama-scenes were shooted on a highway which was used by normal cars. During the shootings the highway wasn't even closed: The car of the Cobra 11-team was placed on a truck (full of cameras). This one drove with a low speed over the highway. In these scenes you can see this by looking at the many trucks which overtake the Cobra 11-detectives....
