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. MOBILE TOURGUIDE Visitors to the Berlin Wall Memorial who have a smartphone or a tablet computer with internet access at their disposal have the opportunity to select an individual tour of the memorial grounds for themselves on the memorial's mobile website berliner-mauer.mobi.

We visited Bernauer Strasse to see where the wall used to be. Hard to believe a city could be divided like this overnight. Very interesting historical area and the memorial was interesting with a great viewing platform across the road from a pice of the...More

Its not really near anything else you can visit, but it's worth the trip. You can see a lot and it's just like you're walking in a park and not really visiting anything. Throughout the whole area there are lots of stands (in German AND...More

I thought the memorial was fairly basic - but when you are commemorating a wall, I guess, your choices are limited. It was worth it though and the kids got a glimpse of a period, which hopefully is in our past.

A must see for anybody visiting this city, part of the history and a reminder of where we don't want to ever go back to.

Memorial provides lots of information about the Wall and its history. Definitely worth a visit, especially as it's free.

Thought provoking outdoor memorial with adequate signage and information, open and outdoors makes it convenient to access and not overrun with crowds.

Historic place, with the story about the wall very interesting but only a few. A lot on the war and Nazi's. Also important, but is told in many other places as well

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

The day tour bus, fantastic way to see all the sights in Berlin- hop on - hop off and see everything, spotless buses, prices start at 20e- great value, book at the bus stops on the streets - well worth it!
