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 one of the places where you get the scale of no man's land and how difficult it would have been to get to the west. You can also look at the faces of those who tried and sadly failed to get across. I was very moved.

I was really moved by this. amazing place. Very sombre. Great layout of space. Really get a good sense of what it would have been like. Fantastically photogenic! Take your time. Walk between east and west a couple of blocks either way. Fantastic! "No W@lls = No W@rs!"

Only a city block long, but the historical relevance is definitely felt here. Underneath the wall, there are the underground interrogation rooms (what's left of them) of the Gestapo. Walk along the wall to get a good information (German and English) of what both places were like and their role in the history of Berlin

This outside exhibition was a bit odd. There wasn't much info and was slightly hard to grasp for people who aren't too clued up on the history of the Berlin Wall. People were sunbathing on the graves. All very odd. There's a museum across the road that is much more insightful. Maybe head there first. This exhibit is easily accessible... More

It is very interesting to see a section of the double walled no mans land and to learn about the procedures.

Now lets face it. There is nothing actually interesting to see at the Wall. It is merely the feeling that you are walking amidst one of the world's most iconic landmarks, and was a symbol of a way of life for nearly 50 years. The story behind that last bit of wall which still stands today is reason enough to... More

We visited here after attempting to walk to the east side gallery and realising it was further from our hostel than we first thought and we were not disappointed! The memorial features individual memorials to those who died there, a large section of the wall, and a lot of signs explaining the wall. They also had preserved the remains of... More

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.
