As a history teacher, I so enjoyed seeing parts of the Berlin Wall. It's so different to see something in person, rather than just read about it. I am so glad that parts of the Wall exist for new generations to see. We can't forget this sad history of Germany, everything from World War II and after, so that we... More

Stopped here as part of one of the Berlin City Tour, tour B, stops. Opposite the Nordbahnhoff Station and next to bus 142. Multi media garden allows you to pay respects to the victims of the Berlin Wall, and there is a museum opposite for more details ( and a useful toilet stop). When I was there there was a... More

It might disappear in a couple of years, people have made their marks on the Wall and you can hardly appreciate the art in it. Really disappointing.

Given so much of Berlin's history has been destroyed through war and conflict, this comprehensive retention and explanation of a portion of the Wall is a must see. Take your time, press all the buttons on the interactive displays, and think about the real and recent history you are learning about. The fragility of democracy and freedom is illustrated so...

you got to have physical disposition, because there are a lot of history in 1 mile, aprox. Fragments of the wall, contemporary art interventions, suggestions about feelings of the people who lived in Bernauer Strasse. At the end, you have the building of the gedenkstatte and the Nordbanhoff Subway Station, onde of the "ghost stations" of berlin

The wall memorial will not be what you expect it's no large sculptures or museum building but it is a nice serene peaceful place. I enjoyed my visit so much. You can see the walls a memorial to the persons who loses their lives and there is quite a few information boards. There is also a part of the wall... More

The work that went into building the wall is amazing! I'm glad a piece was left intact to teach future generations.

Well worth the visit. Incredible to see. Hard to imagine the effect it had on families and that this only came down in 1989

It is a part of not only German history but the history of mankind at whole. It is almost impossible to imagine that such wall was stayed across on of the largest European cities. Very hard but necessary impression

Fantastic memorial, with plenty of atmosphere as well as plenty of information. Only downside is that sometimes the audioguides don't work (I've been 3 times, they've been working on one of those occasions) and that currently (July 2014) the Visitor Centre is undergoing refurbishment and can't be visited (though you can still access the viewing platform. But if what you... More
