It's very impressive to see such a controversial piece of history, interesting to see the painting and writing on the wall, to get a glimpse inside people's minds and hearts. Many of the drawings are really beautiful, the words show a mix of pain, rage and hope - a must see in my opinion.

Imagine a city or nation so controlling that people want to leave. Who were even shot for trying to leave. Almost overnight, a wall was built not to keep people out, but to keep people in. Thus, it's important in my opinion for anyone who comes to Berlin to see the remnants of the wall. Perhaps even to walk over... More

Berliner Mauer - Berlin Wall is great monument of the freedom. This monument is nowdays the most visited attraction in Berlin. The paintings on this wall say lot of the feelings, moods and behavior of the people on the east side of the wall. The waiting on the better days, better future on the new better morning. The atmosphere of... More

Those visiting Berlin should certainly go and see some of the wall, just to get an idea of the hardship the city endured during the time of Communism.

Atmospheric descriptions, videos and exhibits next to a section of the wall all give great information about the wall years.

So nice finally to visit an attraction that does not have admission. The exhibition is fine and there is a viewpost where you can see a pierce of the original wall from above. HAVE IN MIND that there are more than one street in Berlin with the name Bernauer Strasse. The wrong one that we saw is in a Residential... More

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.
