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.

Free entry to museum. Lots to see and to think about. Makes you revalue your freedom to move around without being watched etc.

Having been to West Berlin (and spending a few hours in East Berlin) in 1980, I wanted to go back to see various things in Berlin. The wall was the number one place and a must see for everyone. There isn't much left of it, so this is the best concentrated display in Berlin. It is rather far away from... More

it is interesting to see and compare the real impression with the TV historical programs. Always beneficial to talk to the local as well.

This was a great memorial. Start at the end that it begins. So much history and a lot of reading. It was worth walking and reading. Really gives a good picture of what happened during this time period. We were very moved. This is a must see in Berlin.

Sad that this is the only place to see any remaining part of the actual wall in place but it has a great history to read. However the detail of the history is almost too much to take in. If you are interested in the history of the Nazi and Russian era, then this is a place for you to... More

The Memorial of the Berlin Wall is located toward the north end of the walled part of the city and not near the Checkpoint Charlie Museum like Topography of Terror. It depicts the inner and outer walls and the "no man's land" in between, plus has a memorial to many who were killed trying to cross, including small children. It... More

Makes history present. Incredibly to stand there and picture the horrors of 2nd world war. The remains and the signs really tell the story in a way that touches you. Incredible that so many beautiful and innocent buildings had to be torn down after WW II to erase the signs of the terrible nazi-regime.

It was exciting to think that we were standing at such a historic spot. It was not at all what I had imagined it would look like. I was definitely glad I went and almost felt like I was taking part in history.

Gives a good glimpse of how life was in the cold war years. Many artefacts in which Germans stuck in the East escaped or tried to. I would suggest a guided tour in the museum by one of the experts they have there in house. Historical info first hand from protagonists that lived and suffered those terrible years.

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.
