Owner description: 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.

“A really interesting experience”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Well worth a visit, really interesting and loads of information regarding the wall and I don't regret seeing it. There were quite a few other tourists around when we visited, but it did feel a little bit spooky. There is very little that I can say apart from go and see it for yourself.

“A sobering reminder of what was”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

There were lots of things painted on the wall which described the feelings of the people as the wall came down. The wall, however, was on the former East Berlin side, and was not in the nicest part of town.

“Must see”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Of course you can't go to Berlin and not see the wall. There are three parts of it which can be seen from different locations. The longest stretch which also contains commentaries is at Nordbahnhof (train station).
