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.

This is worth your time and money if only to get a chance to see the Wall for what it was. You'll actually be on the other side of the street, climb the stairs (there's also an elevator if you can't climb them) and be able to see the Wall and what was in between, the "death zone"... Quite overwhelming!...... More

The section of wall left is now somewhat protected and has a nice display of photos and artifacts. With areas that have been taken down, there are the markers and layout of the whole wall. This gives the idea of how things where.

If you missed visiting Berlin before the fall of the wall, you can come here to see what the wall looked like (minus the grafitti/art).

This is part of the wall with the death strip in place which makes you realise why the wall was not relatively straightforward to climb over, as the wall on the west looked, but completely impossible. Seeing it to scale for real is incredible.

Some sections of the wall remain, however the Windows exhibit was most haunting. The Windows were pictures of the 89 people who died escaping from the East. The first person killed was an older middle aged woman, the youngest was barely two years old, and three young men died mere months before the wall came down.

The preserved section of the wall is a stark reminder of the relatively recent history of a divided Berlin. The excavated foundations of one of the Nazi's most sinister buildings form the walkway for a time line of that most troubled period of modern history. The recently built museum is worth visiting also.

A great area to see how the wall was actually constructed to stop people crossing and the various strategies they used through time. The Sbahn, bus and tram bring you here. Take a walk through the cemetery to see untouched sections of the wall.

The Berlin memorial aims to capture the period between 1961 when the Wall Came up & 1989 when the wall was ultimately pulled down.It shows the oppressive tyranny of the communist regime of German Democratic Republic.To prevent its bright professionals from escaping to a better economical miracle of West Germany it constructed the Berlin wall along with barbed wire fencing...

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.
