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.

Unfortunately we had not the best weather when visiting the Memorial. The site is worth to go and see though. It gives a an impressive view of how that site was like during the separation. The film shown in the main building is also worth watching. Don't miss to go up the tower and have the view to look over... More

We got to know of this memorial when we went out to dinner at an Italian restaurant. We were told to go on Sunday so that we can then walk to the flea market at Mauerpark. The memorial is very informative, and one can still see part of the original wall which has not been taken down. Very accessible by... More

It is emblematic and one that will never fade. Allow yourself to underatand what the meaning is and how its fall has promoted a reunification and vitality of... More

A historic location about World war 2. Only a small piece of the wall remain but still you can obtain a lot of information there.

We rented bikes and came here and to East Wall Gallery. This memorial gave great historical perspective of what separated the two Berlins prior to 1989.

Can't praise this highly enough. We must have spent 3 hours walking through this area and it really brings home all the emotions of people on both sides of the wall. So many stories, tragedies and heroic experiences.

It was very histrionic view . It's part of the present history. There were photos of the people who lost there life during the crisis. The watch tower gate remains was there. It is well maintained and the lawn is well kept and green. A must to visit in Berlin.

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
