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.

  • While the past may be painful it can not be forgotten and it is very well done keeping p[arts of the wall and having a memorial of what was  more »
  • The stories told about our recent tragedy are creepy and make us even more understand the stupidity of men if we have not yet learned from these experiences that the walls are torn down not to be new.

  • Beautiful piece of history. The wall was built to divide Germany. Now the ruin Old original Wall is persevered By the Govt. You can learn German history and the witness the real history by visiting the wall. In near by Centre signal you can see Small old Cars . One of the fantastic cars that were used earliest times in German. Ancient Cars fantastic. One of the biggest 🎈 Balloon in the air presents the best sight for the visiters. You can rent those ancient Cars and enjoy your journey in the streets of Germany. Fantastic people. Love for German.
  • This is a must for anyone visiting Berlin and wanting to learn about the history of the wall and what it meant for the people who lived there. The memorial is free to visit, there's the park which contains sections of wall and information posts giving stories about those who escaped, the construction of the wall and the reconciliation church which stood between the two sides. There's one section of the wall preserved with East German lookout tower, the path through the park is the old path that the guards would patrol. Once you've explored the park head to the museum and observation tower (also free) to get lots more information and stories about wall history. The observation tower allows you to see the layout of the wall and just how close both sides were, but separated by so much.
