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.

I came here with my School as a teenager and didnt appreciate it fully. Now 12years later I was really moved by the story telling and visual representations. Especially the sound stations do a good job of conveying the harschness of the times.

Given the size and importance of Berlin in history, I would have been expected a much better display. The signage was difficult to read especially when in the middle of masses of people who are all trying to read the same display.

I was fascinated by the entire indoor/outdoor memorial. The informational panels, audio recordings, and wall murals spread along the outdoor section were informative and helped (along with the pieces of the graffitied wall, and more extensive rebar reconstruction of the entire final wall's location) really...More

This was free when we visited, and it would definitely be worth paying for! There is an exhibition insight, which is about lives of Berliners during the wall era, then upstairs there is a viewing deck which shows you a no-man's land section that has...More

The centre 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

I'm interested in seeing this Check Point Charlie and a few other things. What is the best way to get around? Bus, train, taxi? How much is the bus/train? Are a lot of things centrally located? Is there bike rentals without the tours?
