Overview
More
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 information given in this outdoor display (there is a museum inside as well) is necessary to understanding the history and special nature of Berlin.

That is how our tour started, not with a guide, but a guardian of the memory... that of the Berlin Wall. And our French guardian did an excellent job. He offered our group a thought-provoking tour with rather deceiving statistics. I then realized that I...More

First you get to see the remnants of the wall, up and close. When we visited in the last week of June, the WatchTower was under repair, so we missed out on the sight from there. But, what we saw was good enough. On the...More

We stopped by the wall on our walking tour. Listening to the history and realizing that the fall of the wall happened during our life time and just getting a new perspective on the history of it was very powerful. Check out the wall!

We first got an understanding of the history of the wall through a free walking tour then went back in our own to spend more time at the attraction. It's free to enter. Knowing the history better makes this sight a must see.

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

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!
