This tour starts with a drive to the North-East, visiting the ruins of the XVth century church in Gross Legitten. It was not damaged during the War, but was immediately abandoned and is now in poor condition.

The drive to Polessk (Labiau) is through several villages whose German past is clearly visible in their architecture. Labiau itself has been largely rebuilt but the ruins of the XIII century Teutonic castle remain, as do several large XIX century town houses.

Sovietsk (Tilsit), the next town to be visited, has held onto more of its German past with many streets still as they were originally built.The Queen Louise Bridge across the Neman River is now a border with Lithuania. Visitors can get close enough to take photographs.

in ruins.
