The farther away from 1989 we get, the harder it is to understand what the wall was like. Sure, we can see movies and hear stories, but it is something that is hard to really understand unless you see it in person. But now the wall is down and you can't see it in person. So this is about as... More

I had read a lot about the wall dividing East and West Berlin, but to see it in person is very sobering. I had to stand there and imagine life for the people who lived here and how they suffered. There are several sections of the wall throughout the city as well as a "path" that you can follow to... More

The memorial site was quite different from what I was expecting. The interpretation panels were really informative and helped to put the remnants of the Wall into their historical perspective. The pane of photographs of all those who had died trying to escape to the West was really moving.

How could this take place just a few decades ago. Families devided by a huge wall. Guards killing people just when they tried to escape. Have a city surrounded by a wall, +/- 200 km long.

We stopped on the hop in-hop out tour bus, and I am happy we did, it is a historic place, but I was not impressed. There were "a ton" of people and it really became such a touristic place that did not talked to me

It is very hard to understand the concept of a city divided. When you see the wall you can imagine to some extent what it was like. This is a living monument to the past. We stopped here on our hop on hop off bus.

It was a nice stroll (from a U-bahn to the S-Station) about a km. or two. Alot of history on the way. The tower opposite the "time capsule" was amazing. It was the only attraction we did that didn't cost anything. If the weather is nice I can really reccomend this.
