I visited different sections of the Berlin wall all over the city. This section off of Bernauer Straße had such fascinating history that I stayed and read the panels for quite a while, and when I came home I did more research on the history of the wall and what happened there. The station Nordbahnhof itself was a ghost station... More

Well worth the drive to East Berlin to see what remains of the Berlin Wall. Be sure to check out the art museums nearby for their unfilled bullet holes and scorched statues as a testament to WW2. Both are very moving and worth seeing.

I am sure you have heard many stories about families that were splitted because of the Berlin Wall. But if you really want to know what it was for real, you must visit the Memorial of the Berlin Wall. You can see several movies showing peolple intending to cross from one side of the wall to the other side. You... More

Worth a visit as this area shows the inner and outer wall with watch tower. There is also a watch tower viewing gallery as well as the museum which shows short films which gives you an idea of what it was like. For a more expanse area of the wall I would recommend visiting the east side gallery.

The Berlin wall Memorial is great to see from the lookout tower where there are informative panels with photos and details of the events leading up to the building of the wall and the dismantling of it. The part that has been preserved with 'No mans Land' in between and the security checktower is clearly visible and you have a... More

For those who have not seen the wall "live" this is the last chance to see a solid stretch of what has divided Germany.

Really nice place to visit, full of history and art. I fact, a big art gallery in the open. The wall should be protected to prevent people from writing on top of the old paintings, but it's not. Carefull with the game scams that are present to you along the wall, we almost fall for one. It's also near the... More

Having grown up in the cold war, it is really great to see the progress of the world and see Germany as one country again. WIth so much bad news in the world, it is refreshing to see progress!

A simple yet moving open space, but it is all the historical photos that bring this place into perspective. What little of the wall that is still standing is interesting, but not near as memorable as the photos with text. Makes one appreciate the freedoms we have today. Very glad I got to see ...

This is a great open space taking place on what used to be the death strip... To look at some of the pictures at the wall you can still see some of the same buildings. Make sure to make it across the street to see the videos to really learn more about how the Wall's history - it is both... More
