About
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.

This was far better than I expected and I had high expectations. A significant length of the wall has been marked, with a section retained/ re-constructed and an excellent (free) visitor centre built. Tunnels are marked on the ground, those that lost their lives are remembered and there is plenty to see.

The Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer (Berlin Wall Memorial) commemorates the division of Berlin by the Berlin Wall. Erected in 1998 by Germany and the city look for hundreds of upright rods plus a few sections of the original wall stretching along the street and consider downloading a self-guided audio tour for more details.

A must see when in Berlin! Memorial of the wall, and its history is an important part of Berlins history. Almost nothing is left of the wall today, but metal plates has been erected where the wall once stood.

Really interesting and worth a visit. Thought provoking and moving. Definitely worth a visit. The exhibition is also excellent and I'd recommend climbing the tower to see the wall from above.

Definitely the place to visit if you want to know more of the Berlin Wall. Very informative Documentation Center, be sure to visit the tower there to see the preserved remains of the wall. Unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to go through all exhibits inside the center, as they close at 6pm. However, the outdoor exhibits are always open.

This was a very important part in history, and to see the wall memorial was great. There are so many things to see that it could take hours, but just standing there transported you in time.
