Touch a piece of history at Memorial of the Berlin Wall, 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. A visit to Memorial of the Berlin Wall represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Berlin trip itinerary builder app to plot your vacation.

  • It's unique but a bit underwhelming. They have preserved most things and the goodies that people experienced due to it are hard to imagine but it is basically a small section of wall with the extra layers of security that the Soviet military had put up to stop people from crossing over. The open air picture museum starts well before on the walls of the buildings along the park. The view from the top shows the entire strip of no man's land leading to the wall on the eastern side from 1962-1989. It's interesting and very far away from most of the central tourist stuff.
  • The 1.4 Km memorial contains the last piece of Berlin Wall with the preserved grounds behind it. The museum and parts of the preserved iron curtain allow you to touch the wall, experience the wall, and learn all about this site through highly engaging displays, which have English translations for international tourists. Not too far off the city centre, there’s a tram that plies the route every few minutes. A must-see site for anyone visiting Berlin.
