The remains of the Berlin Wall was much smaller than I'd expected and less intimidating. I found some of the artwork on it disturbing without any particular meaning, The site of the Gestapo H Q near one of the remnants of the wall was much more dramatic and evocative. Quite disappointing.

A bit off the beaten path, it is an impressive "museum" to see and live how it was to live in a divided city. Well explained and beautifully showcased. Do not miss!

There are a few places in Berlin that have portions of the wall. It is hard to imagine just how much horror was caused with just a concrete wall, and how many people passed trying to escape.

It's at Neubahnhof which was one of the ghost stations in East Berlin. It is quite a big outdoor site with original bits of the wall, as well as lots of information sections which have English translations. The most moving but was the windows with memorials to those who died trying to escape from the east. There is an original... More

Just a long thin pice of concrete wall but thick in history. The memorial contains the lead up to the destruction of Warsaw with an impressive flyby of Warsaw showing the 85% destruction following German bombing. Inside the metal building, a complete and graphic history of the rise of Nazi power. Very moving exhibit and a must. 3 blocks from... More

It was not funny at that times. And only when you visit this place, you will understand what it meant to "cross the wall". I do not understand how anybody could do it. Take the U-Bahn to Bernauer Strasse and start in small building. Continue along the street. Whole exhibition is multi-lingual (english included) and interesting. From facts about the... More

This memorial is very informative and well-exposed, with lot of information about the daily life at Berlin Wall's days. Beyond that, this whole space is very touching and moving. All the media resources, videos, photos, drafts, and so on, are very well used to exposed clearly that moment in modern history.

I was interested to understand and feel how it was to experience the Berlin Wall and this was the best place to find out for me. I took the U to Bernauer Str. Turn left and you are at the beginning of the exhibition which is set along an entire street. There are many posts with graphic images with most... More

Great visit. Loads of information (also in English!) given about the history and the landmark moments of the Wall and when it finally came down. Humbling thing to see, amazing part of German history that is not to be missed. Bonus: completely free to visit.
