Scooch around Nordbahnhof station for a pocket history of the progressive division of Berlin, eerie pictures of the ghost stations and stories of escape, pop up to the surface for a preserved section of the wall, its development and trappings with plenty of hard facts and poignant memories of those who wanted out. All for free. Recommend this before Checkpoint... More

Well we all know what the berlin wall was about and although knowing a lot of it had now gone I was initially slightly disappointed that I could only follow some of it as a double row of cobbles along the streets where it ran - even Checkpoint Charlie had gone. BUT DONT BE FOOLED! The memorial exists where an... More

Firstly from reading some previous reviewers, there is some confusion as to which this memorial is. It is not at Checkpoint Charlie and its not the decorated wall by the river which is the East Side Gallery. This is what I would describe as a respectful open air museum, which has a section of the wall remaining, along with the... More

Must do for history lovers. The wall is preserved on its original form and the exhibit is very accurate and informative. Take your time to read the information and think, making your visit even more pleasurable.

Liked the way the history was explained. Did NOT like the blatant commercial exploitation.(actors dressing up as American/Russian Soldiers)

Some of the wall art along this remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall is worth a look. It provides a pleasant walk alongside the canalised Spree.

It's an easy trip on the S 25. Every American should visit here. It gives you a really good feel for what it was like to have the wall build smack in the middle go a neighborhood. The visitor center has two great movies. You truly understand what animals the East German Gov and the Soviets were.

A brilliantly preserved memorial with good information plaques around it to inform visitors about the history of the area. One brilliant touch was the computer screens with pictures of photos dated 1980, 1982/3 and 2013 so that one can see just how much the view has changed of objects that one is looking at on that exact spot.
