Description: The Berlin Wall Memorial is the central memorial site of German division...
The Berlin Wall Memorial is the central memorial site of German division, located in the middle of the capital. Situated at the historic site on Bernauer Strasse, it extends along 1.4 kilometers of the former border strip. The memorial contains the last piece of Berlin Wall with the preserved grounds behind it and is thus able to convey an impression of how the border fortifications developed until the end of the 1980s. The events that took place here together with the preserved historical remnants and traces of border obstacles on display help to make the history of Germany's division comprehensible to visitors. The memorial is part of the Berlin Wall Foundation, which also includes the Marienfelde Refugee Center Museum, the central site dedicated to the history of flight and emigration in divided Germany.

The wall is just amazing. In places where the wall has fallen/been removed, they now have a new wall to protect the wall remains - kinda bizarre! Some astonishing artwork, some moving messages and just lots of it. Great if you dig graffiti.

Well worth a visit. Very well done reconstruction of the wall and the no-man's land "defended" strip.

We walked the entire distance and felt so lucky to live where we do. Everyone should go see and experience this.

Proud of the German that they show the truth of the Wall. People learn a lot more when visiting this place. It's has a very detail history of the World War II . Honest to face the history! I like it.

I went here on a walking tour. Very worth the trip. I learned a lot and was able to really get a feel for what living on each side of the wall would have been like.

You can walk down the road along the line of the former wall. There is an iron fence reminding of the wall as well as photos explaining history. It is quite an experience as well as a great way to learn more about Berlin's history.

Obviously the Berlin Wall is a must see when visiting Berlin. The memorials, photographs and the remains of the wall itself are very moving. If you intend to to visit the Wall's museum however, choose your day carefully as they close on Mondays (perhaps other days too) as we found out when we got there. Recommended.

Forget checkpoint charlie, if you really want to appreciate the history of the Berlin Wall and the impact it had on the people then this is the place to go. Sensitively presented, both the museum and the memorial park capture the gravity of the wall and the experiences of people who's lives it affected. With so much of the original... More
