Abstract: In this paper we study the Tits geometry of a 3-dimensional graphmanifold of nonpositive curvature. In particular we give an optimal upper bound for the length of nonstandard components of the Tits metric. In the special case of a $\pi /2$-metric we determine the whole length spectrum of the nonstandard components.
