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.

I grew up with the wall as a reality and visited Berlin a week after the wall came down. Visiting the Memorial almost seems surreal and hard to believe it was real when you look at the vibrant city Berlin is today. This is well worth a stop to make you contemplate and think of what we have done and... More

We took the U-Bahn to Bernauer Strasse and exited to the left as you walk to the surface. The Wall, now represented by a string of steel rods goes along Bernauer Strasse all the way to the Nord Bahnhof and the Wall Museum. Many exhibits and audios in steel columns along the way give the story of the Wall. Near... More

I had something more in my mind when going here but it still effected me deeply. Especially all the faces of the victims of the Wall. So sad.. Very informative and interesting.

I brought my class for a (free!) guided trip, just book in advance. We had a great guide, Adam, whose absolutely beautiful English made it an even greater experience to see, understand and appreciate the victims of the Wall. The back and front walls are visible here as is the no man's land belonging to the guards with guns. You... More

Very interesting and well made memorial place. Lots of things to see and read. We spent here a couple of hours, would have spent more but it was extremely hot that day. Only doneside is, that if you visit many museums etc in Berlin that tell about the wall, then the stories start to repeat itself. So more variation to... More

This site was surprisingly good - it really brought home to me - along with the information centre - the barriers put in place to keep Easterners from moving freely to the West. Really worth a visit.

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.
