Memorial of the Berlin Wall, Berlin

4.5
Touch a piece of history at Memorial of the Berlin Wall, the central memorial site of German division and reunification. At this open-air exhibit created in 1998, you'll learn why the country and the city were forcibly split for nearly three decades. The memorial incorporates a 60 m (200 ft) stretch of the original Berlin Wall, as well as the remains of several border installations and escape tunnels. At the visitors' center, you can pick up lots of materials detailing how the wall was created in the 1960s and dismantled in 1989. For a good view of the entire memorial grounds, climb up to the observation tower of the adjacent documentation center.

  • As a tourist this is a nice outdoor visit. I would recommend it. It is nice and let's you get really close to the wall, and one of the guard towers is preserved. The remains stretches quite far. Nearby there is a nice exhibition about the time and events surrounding the wall, with a staircase leading up to a position from where to view the whole area.
  • Easy to get to, they have preserved the area really well. All the information we saw was available in English. They have done a great job of being open about what has happened in their past not just at this place but at all the places I visited
