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.

Very interesting museum to explain the story of the wall. From the top floor/terrasse a reconstitution of the wall with a watchtower can be seen, and give a real feeling how it looked like. Some pictures are printed on the wall from the neighbours houses

On first glance one could think a bit underwhelming, but actually still chilling. Can especially recommend a walking tour and some explanations so that it all makes more sense, for example by Insider Tour Berlin. Very informative.

This place embodies the suffering of Berliners who have been tear apart from their families because of the terrific socialist regime. It offers an imaginary insight into the lives of people and the ways they have tried to escape to the West. Bernauer Strasse became...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!
