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.

The story told as you move from one area to the next is revelling of man's inhumanity. There are facts that I did not know and I left feeling sad for those past events and resolved to read more about the history before 1939 and...More

Stopped to see the tower, and the parts of this historical landmark. Make sure you read the plaquards on the ground and on the various small columns.

The two block long exhibit of the original site of the Berlin Wall was wonderfully portrait with its history and first had accounts of the devastation imposed by the communists on people & families.

Apart from the fact that this memorial is free, it's also definitely worth a visit because of the quality and depth of the information given. It's very moving too.

This memorial is very understated and tastefully done with signage indicating those 58 who died while trying to go over the wall. There are parts that still exist with a watch tower.

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

Most toilets in Europe charge you 0,5€ minimum. However, the toilets in the Berlin Wall Memorial Museum in the basement of the building is modern, clean and Free! The Museum is also free of charge.

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!
