Memorial of the Berlin Wall, Berlin, Germany


4.5 (18.0k reviews) Sunday: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM Spent 2-3 hours Ranking #2 in Berlin Historic Sites

Behind, and through, and around, the "Iron Curtain"

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.

    Best display of Berlin Wall and East/West divide (including walk alongside the wall)
    You can spend a lot of time in Cold War and WWII museums in Berlin, only to see the same stories and history repeated numerous times over. The Berlin Wall Museum and the park that runs alongside (with stretches of the wall and other artefacts still in place to see) is definitely the pick of the bunch if you're looking to understand the division between East & West Berlin/Germany. Not only is it free, but it is put together in a very thoughtful manner and is more concise than a lot of the other museums. Other museums are a bit more specific on certain themes - the memorial museum is broad in nature and covers the history well.

    Worth a visit
    If you're coming to Berlin, you have to make the effort to visit the memorial and we did during our four day visit to the city. A lot of history in Berlin, and glad to see there are still reminders of this period in German history which should serve as a reminder to all nations of the harshness of brutal regimes and lives that are often ruined. I remember the fall of the wall, but seeing it for real, I cannot imagine what it would have been like for the people of this city given it went up literally over-night without any warning.
