This site sheds light on just how divisive the wall was. It gives a real feeling and understanding of how close families lived to either side of the wall. The museum is also very good as is the observation deck. Inscriptions on the wall are...More

This is one of the best outdoor galleries that I've ever been to. Sections of the Berlin Wall still stand and there are beautiful canvases for metres and metres.

A moving memorial that succinctly describes life when the Wall was up. It is free, you can walk at your own pace, various sections are described in both German and English. Note that the majority is located outside, so be prepared for the weather. There...More

The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum

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

Take the U8 to Bernauer Str then you can walk down towards the museum, you can walk along parts of the wall still standing and where the church was demolished to build the wall. Get a day ticket for the U and S Bahn €7.00
