Overview

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.

Parts of the wall are left as reminder of the terrible times, alongside a wall made with metal bars which renders the idea of what was there. There are infographic and historic placards showing some of the attempted flights. The reconciliation chapel is a very...More

We all know about Berlin wall but you will get goosebumps just reading the stories and seeing the wall remains. It is free, so everyone should go and leave aside a few hours for it.

What a moving place to visit and see how different the world was back then and how different it is now. Allows you to see how Germany was affected by the war and it's new start. I would plan at least an hour or more.

A tower gives an excellent view of the wall and neighborhoods on both sides. Many Berliners, according to the descriptions, wanted to tear the wall completely down. Some had the foresight that preserving a section would be helpful to history. What was created here is...More

Loved how it provided the sense of rawness and greyness associated with that period. Well done. Not too touristy and just an eye-opening experience

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

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.
