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.

  • Very impressive site whose access is free which allows very concretely what was the Berlin wall. A platform which is accessed by a long metal staircase overlooks the site preserved intact with its mirador. There are also rooms of information with films and photographs.

  • This is one of the most beautiful memorials I have ever seen. It is nicely integrated in the city and it doesn't feel fake. You can see the outlines and remnants of these places that used to be there and read/watch the memories of the people. The little church and the museum are also beautifully and thoughtfully made. A must see in Berlin.
  • Abundant content and touching real life stories about how East Berliners trying to cross the wall. A must see attraction in Berlin. However, there were too many illegal migrants (aka asylum seeker) persuading tourists to "donate". My friend gave them 10 Euro but that idiot even asked for more, like 50 Euro. Unbelievable!
  • My favorite place in Berlin to get the whole picture of what the wall really was and what really happened.. After you visited the museum and watched the documentaries you can walk along the place everything you've seen happened.. It's really mindblowing!! A must see
  • Fascinating to say the least. I love how much history is preserved here. Very short walk from the metro.
  • Excellent walk. Very informative. Extremely interesting to see the well preserved parts of the old wall
