I really loved the graffiti art on the wall and it was nice to walk down and see the remains of the wall.

Interesting place where you really can feel what it was like to live on the other side of the wall. There is only one small café but the waitress there didn't speak any English. The viewing place was good.

I'm glad we went in the early evening, as it lent the experience an appropriately calm and solemn air, but I do regret that the memorial centre was closed when we arrived. There is less of the outer wall itself than I had expected, and it took us a little while to orientate ourselves to where exactly no man's land... More

I like history and always wanted to go here. The experience, if you choose to actually read and learn, is chilling. The amount of opression these people suffered is immense. I had tears in my eyes.

Great information. The concept of the wall literally blew my mind, I learnt so much and walked miles. Would highly recommend.

Shady area, wall is full of meaningless graffiti, which covers the actual artists' creations, can skip.

For anyone remotely interested in the story of nazism and their rise to power. The museum next door is also a must see.

This was the one place in Berlin our German friends wanted us to se. It was good to see so many school groups there the day we visited. I choked up when I (a Boomer) saw some young teenage boys trying to see who could run and leap the farthest up the wall. How marvelous that they were free to... More
