The Zehlendorf motorway junction , also known as the Zehlendorfer Kleeblatt , is the name given to the intersection of the 115 federal motorway coming from the Nuthetal triangle and leading to the Funkturm triangle with Bundesstraße 1 , which is called Potsdamer Chaussee here as the old Berlin entry and exit road . As a fully developed intersection without intersections, the complex has the shape of a four-leaf clover when viewed from above. The Zehlendorf motorway junction is located in the Nikolassee district near the Brandenburg community of Kleinmachnow . During the division of Germany , the inner German border in the form of the Berlin Wall ran between West Berlin and the GDR only a few hundred meters south of the motorway junction. The Dreilinden-Drewitz border crossing point and the Bravo checkpoint were located at this point .

A pink snow blower now stands on the base of the former Soviet memorial.

On the median of Potsdamer Chaussee in the immediate vicinity of the cross is the June 17, 1953 memorial , somewhat hidden and difficult to access .

In the years after the Second World War , a Soviet T-34 tank was parked on the clover leaf . It is said to have been the tank that was the first to reach the city limits when the Red Army conquered Berlin . Originally set up as a symbol of liberation, however, it increasingly became the target of anti-Soviet attacks and had to be protected by American military police. In 1954 it was then implemented further south in GDR territory. He stayed there until the Soviet troops withdrew in 1990. Today there is a pink snow blower on the pedestal by the motorway.
