I have been to Vienna a couple of times and had no idea these things existed.

I thought they, in all 3 cities, had been destroyed by the Allies at the end of the War.

Parts of the Humboldt tower remain and the Friedrichshain one in Berlin was buried but mostly intact I think.

I think Berlin had to rebuild their railroad or their subway if they destroyed the flak tower you mentioned, and that can be quite expensive. The cold war prevented any major attempt to get rid of it as well when Berlin was a divided city
