Owner description: 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.

M10 tram from HBF station. Probably THE best free exhibition. Very interesting, sombre and thought provoking, the area shows the history of Bernauer Strasse, the layout of the wall, Look out towers, tunnels etc. Lots of information freely available all along the site as well as the murals on the buildings.

Ticked off my bucket list.
Very interesting site to see, lots of money needs to be spent in preserving this area and this Memorial needs to be finished hopefully I will return to see the progress.

The memorial and the museum nearby are informative and tourist-friendly.
*The elevator at the museum was out of service, so as an impaired person ai couldn’t get the glimpse at the memorial from the top view.

Visiting the memorial of the Berlin Wall makes one understand the agonising impact of the war . Take a walking tour rather than just seeing the wall.

This is a good place to visit. It is busy it is touristy etc.
however it IS ONE OF THE LAST remaining pieces of wall.
It is history it is good to learn => just a shame so little is left over and hence so touristy.
