Industrial Archaeology of Berlin

I've searched and searched and couldn't find a guide to industrial archaeology in Berlin. Any suggestions where to go?

Thanks.

I'm not really sure what you're looking for, but see e.g.

Berlin isn't strong on industrial archaeology, hence limited information. There are a few things to see like the water tower in Prenzlauerburg and Wilmersdorf Power station but they're not really visitor attractions.Most of the type of things I think you wish to see will be in the surrounding Brandenburg region and easily accessible by Regional Express trains (the Brandenburg (day )Ticket is 23 euros for up to 5 people) For example Mildenburg brickworks, Niederfinow Ship lift. Go to www.brandenburg-tourism.com (there is an English translation) then use the map to identify places of interest

have you tried the Science Museum, its fantasic and huge, with a cheapish ticket, so its a good value day out.

see if you can find the old ack-ack towers from WWII as well. 3 concrete structures so huge that when they were demolished they formed new hills. one was only half demolished, as it sat above a vital rail line, and is still visible.

good luck and have a great time!
