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.

I was struck by the acceptance of graffitti by Germans, all over Germany. This seemed odd as Germans are organized and neat. In my city in the USA, graffiti stands for gangs and thugs (and some artists, but mostly gangs) and it is undesirable. In...More

This is a must see attraction. It was such a part of the city so it is great that they have left a part for everyone to experience at to remember what it represented.

The memorial has plenty to look at and read the stories of people who attempted and succeeded and failed to cross the wall. It was done in good taste. The site is clean and uncluttered and not commercialized. I had seen the wall when the...More

So, how to think about the recent German past..Nazi's and East Germany/Berlin, while basking in the glorious cultural achievements of "Germany" We had sort of planned to not try and combine the atrocities and the brilliance in the same trip. Hard to compartmentalize, I guess....More

Incredible place to visit. I remember when the wall came down, and it was very moving to see this place. See what has been preserved, and how the area is moving on as well. Don't miss out on this one.

A powerful reminder of what was. Very well presented in an understandable, factual, un-emotional manner. The only question in our mind is...."Have we learned anything?"

I was here with a bicycle-guide (fat tire bike tour), who told some good history stuff about the wall and such. It was very interesting.

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

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!
