Its a wall. The symbolic meaning is great, and you may feel like you need to go because, who goes to Berlin without seeing the wall? But don't expect too much. It is after all... a wall.

Was there before the Wall went up, That I liked. Did not like seeing the Wall in 1962. This had many memories.

Looking to the wall memorial one has to appreciate the strength of oneness and nationhood of German people. At the end they demolish the so called strong structure which tried to make them apart from their own self. Open art gallery on sided of wall is nice and have some meaningful pieces of art

A very unique history was created when the Four Powers divided Berlin into 4 Sectors after WWII. Fascinating History and Human Story - Understanding the 1961 erection of The Wall and the range of consequences and emotions for Berliners, Germans, soldiers stationed there and anyone visiting, through its start to "fall", peacefully (!) down in November 1989.

To visit the remains of the Berlin wall was a highlight for me. As a young girl i lived in Berlin when my Dad served in the British army to come back all these years later was surreal. This is a must site to visit. Grab your self a piece of the history wall on your tour.

This memorial gives a good insight to the trials and tribulations that Berliners had to suffer during the "Cold War". As well as the remaining stretch of wall and watch tower there are stories, pictures and audio along its length. Across the road is the exhibition and climb a few stairs and you have a great view over a large... More

When we visited Berlin for the first time, we missed this place somehow. But we were really looking for it.m So our second trip was because we really wanted to see it. And we did. But it was sad. Despite the fact that in some parts it gained some colour because of some street artist, the grey coulour and heaviness... More

We walked a considerable distance to find a short piece of the wall which whilst unimpressive in itself brought back many memories of stories from the time.

We visited on a Monday unknowing the visitor was shut, which was a shame as it could have added to the overview visit. Found what was there to be interesting and it was good to see what was left of the wall. Close by is a viewing platform which provides you with a decent overview of the site. Don't visit... More

This wall is not really an interesting place. The history that it tries to tell is not really bringing impact to persons coming there. I expect to be more story to be told, but unfortunately it did not. 15 mins is the time I spent there.
