Berlin remember and respects the memory of the wall. It is one of the most strong impressions that I brought from this city. The wall is not there and yet it is everywhere

We included Berlin in our European trip due to the history, It did not disappoint. We experienced a lot the city had to offer to help explain the Cold War. This attraction was certainly worth the visit

Very informative. Contained many direct accounts of the war and primary sources such as photographs and letters. Excellent insight into how the city was transformed and affected by the devastation of war.

For some reason, a number of reviewers include their sightings of other sections of the wall under this listing. In fact, the Memorial of the Berlin Wall is a specific park at Bernauer Strasse with a number of worthwhile exhibits. To be clear, it is NOT near Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate, or any of the centrally-clustered sites. However, it... More

Although smaller than I had anticipated, the Wall memorial park is a must for every visitor. Read before so you know the history, it makes the visit an even better experience. Look also in the Metro station where they have marked where the wall divided the city also underground.

A powerful remembrance of a time of oppression that was reality not more than 25 years ago. Impressive to see part of the wall that divided Germany for so many years. They have also set up an indoor exhibition of the Holocaust in the nearby building that was very informative.

And thought provoking. The words that came to my mind, along with tears of emotion were" Ye, though I walk through the Valley of the Shadow of Death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me." A must see in Berlin, draw your own interpretations, but remember and learn for,the future.

You should not miss this memorial. It shows and explains very clearly how was built the Berlin Wall and how people had to deal with it. You can easily spend two hours outside reading the panels and walking around to discover the ruins of the wall and the old chapel transform in memorial as well. Very informative and moving place!

If you like art and history, then I suggest to visit this place when you in Berlin. The location isn't too far from Berlin Ostbahnhof. Just need a 5-10 mins walk and if you see a long wall full of scribbles and paintings, then you already arrive at the notable piece of German history. Basically, its very interesting to understand...
