Wherever you travel in Berlin keep your eye open for pieces of the Berlin Wall. There is quite a decent stretch standing along the original line at Potsdamer Platz and information panels telling you of the history, but you will find other sections in random...More

A reminder of the awful division of a city. Worth seeing once in your life. Spoilt by nearby shops feeding tourist tat.

If time is a premium, simply visit the preserved section of the wall that is ( naturally) outside near the memorial with a sign “ Berlin Wall Monument”. There you may walk along and read some information about the wall and the Germany it divided.

To think this Wall was built to keep people in---So many people were leaving East Berlin for West Berlin, they needed to stop people from leaving. This is a powerful memorial that underlines that privilege of freedom. So sad that so many people died trying...More

You will get to see remaining parts of the Wall. The film shows inside the museum give you a fantastic understanding of The Wall, how it was built etc. Really quite frightening. Really makes you appreciate democracy.

So glad we have this memorial - my only hope is that it will change the way the world sees each other so we never end up in that scenario again.

Wandering through the more visible remnants of mid 20th century Berlin was a bit heavy at times, with outrage, disbelief and sorrow frequently coming to the heart. This was countered by evidence of hope, joy and rebuilding visible in many of the reunification era monuments.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

Take the U8 to Bernauer Str then you can walk down towards the museum, you can walk along parts of the wall still standing and where the church was demolished to build the wall. Get a day ticket for the U and S Bahn €7.00
