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.

To understand and learn how it was to be at the wall was impressive. The scenario puts you into the shoes of someone living there.

Excellent way to understand and see the wall all at the same time. Dont be fouled like me. It carries on for some distance and I only got to see the first section. You need to carry on walking the blocks.

Take your time and look at the wall, the murals, the photos associated with it. Visit the museum and try to understand what the residents had to endure. It is very thought provoking. Only those who lived with it can truly understand it. The rest...More

Interesting to see how part of the wall looked but I feel it could benefit from being displayed in a smaller area and contained more detail of the souls who lost their lives. Nice memorial and photos but would love to have heard their stories....More

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
