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.

This memorial is free and you can get a good view into it from the little "tower" across the street. The tower can be accessed via stairs or elevator. The memorial is fenced/walled in so you can only see it from the outside. It shows...More

The memorial was excellent. It gave everyone a chance to experience the history of the Berlin Wall. You spend hours there and it was all free, interactive with lots of nostalgia. Escape tunnels, videos, and real life exhibits for great photo opportunities.

This is well worth the short trip on the U-bahn, really eye opening and free to the public. A glimpse of old Berlin and how the wall affected the lives of the residents.

Well, you can see here small squere and couple info tables, but nothing impressive. East side gallery is more worth to visit.

What is left from the wall of Berlin , full of graffiti art and a surrounding that doesn’t show any appreciation and respect to this part of history. Wouldn’t recommend it.

The Berlin Wall changed so much of Berlin's history and created such a crazy dichotomy within a single city that this cannot be missed. The whole time you will just be asking yourself - could this happen again? Why did this happen so easily?

This is a really interesting bit of modern history. There are small mementos of the Berlin wall all over the city (just look down at the road or consider the East/West sides of the Mall of Berlin), but this is a more in-depth memorial of...More

The main building housing the memorial / museum is fairly small, but there are a few levels that should be explored to take full advantage of the learning experience. Many exhibits and photos really give you a sense of significance of this time period. And...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

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.

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!
