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.

This is a good review of "how the things are in soviet to americanofrancoanglo boarders" This is an exhibition and there are plenty free gallery's and videos from the Wall's past. The steel columns are constructed above the demolished Wall, and you have a Free aerial view right behind the former West-Berlin.

Very well laid out & easy to understand! It is outside and there is also a museum indoors. The terrain is flat.

We saw sections of the original Wall at the East Side Gallery and outside the Topography of Terror museum (near Checkpoint Charlie). However, we didn't really appreciate the grim reality of the Wall until we visited this section. Highly recommended and easily accessible via the hop-on-hop-off buses (although check the routes, since it's not on all itineraries). Essentially, this is... More

This spot is easily accesible by underground, it's for free, there's either steps/elevator to go up. You can see a preserved part of the berlin wall with all its features includig a watch tower.

The visitor center has a couple of movies to help give some historical context. The memorial is across the street and is well done. You can see how the inner and outer walls were oriented to each other. The photos of the persons murdered while trying to escape are sad and moving.

It is a fair presentation of the Berlin Wall. Maybe the only place in Berlin (out of just few points) where the depth of the "no man's land" is so visible and can be perceived.

This is one historic site testifying the human ingenuity in oppressing one another when we are left to our own device. The fall of this wall symbol the the unsustainable practice of a political ideal.

This is a must see to help you understand how it was and what it means you should visit this. After that I understood "never a wall again".

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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 way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
