Never I imagine in my life I will be able to see the Berlin Wall. This is the historical site that will be remember forever. What I disliked was, some tourists took photo in front of the wall smiling,waving, giggling. Some even took selfie in front of the wall. I wish people be more sensitive & respect to places like...

A mile of the iconic Wall remains and now serves as an outdoor gallery.The artwork is striking and at times chilling and is a stark reminder of the suppression which only ended 25 years ago.

I visited this memorial in March 2015 and discovered it by accident. It is around the corner from Checkpoint Charlie. The museum is very well laid out and it is very chilling. It focuses on different periods in the Nazi era and tracks the individuals involved. Well worth a visit.

We walked past the wall by accident but pleased we did. A blast back into the past and it makes you realise what happened here. It gives you a small feel of Germany's recent history.

This monument gives a different take on the Berlin wall and what it was like to actually live inside its boundaries. The visitor centre is excellent but out guidebooks didn't do it justice, this place is really a must see and better than the East Side Gallery.

It was cool to see how people had spray painted in the 80s like the do today with the swoopy curved letters. It was strange to see the people dressed up in cold war garb holding soviet flags.

There are sections of the Berlin Wall visible at various points around the city but the Memorial is perhaps the best to see as it is a quite long section which has been 'decorated' in various styles by artists from around the world. It is now a World Heritage Site. At first sight, the Wall doesn't appear that high but... More

Concrete and iron. But makes you realise how something can have such a powerful effect on people. Next to topography of terror. See both. Be grateful we won the war

Walk up to the top of the platform and you will get a feel for the barrier that people faced to get from oppression to freedom. It is sobering.

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.
