Touch a piece of history at Berlin Wall Memorial, the central memorial site of German division and reunification. At this open-air exhibit created in 1998, you'll learn why the country and the city were forcibly split for nearly three decades. The memorial incorporates a 60 m (200 ft) stretch of the original Berlin Wall, as well as the remains of several border installations and escape tunnels. At the visitors' center, you can pick up lots of materials detailing how the wall was created in the 1960s and dismantled in 1989. For a good view of the entire memorial grounds, climb up to the observation tower of the adjacent documentation center.

  • When you feel the feeling want to how it has been indeed! Is this the only place in Berlin! The border strip in each visitor is to see original and lets everyone enjoy that there is no longer this wall.

  • Excellent memorial documenting this important stretch of the Berlin Wall. Walking along its length there are posted pieces of information (German and English) describing what happened here and how many escaped. There is a preserved section walled off. To see it you need to go into the document center and climb the viewing platform. Be advised the hours are different, and the platform/center closes earlier - so you may want to plan around those hours.
  • Its a fantastic place to visit in Berlin. They have put up some video monitors which show you the history of why the wall is constructed, how it advanced and how it ended. Its a very interesting topic to see and perceive it in real from the remaining of the wall.
  • Beautiful memorial, definitely a must-see when visiting Berlin. There are plenty of informative plaques and you can follow the old transport road that used to be within the inner and outer walls (now an asphalt walking path). It also shows the outlines of some of the buildings as well as the route of some of the escape tunnels built by people trying to cross over into West Berlin.
  • The war memorials in Berlin are so striking in their simplicity, originality, and impact. This is no exception. Such an amazing tribute! Tip: To see the more creative sections of the Berlin Wall, visit the East Side Gallery, which is a showcase of 118 artists.
  • My wife and I walked here from our hotel, quite early in the morning. There is a lot of information explaining about the walls and much more history. Well worth a visit when in Berlin.
