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.

Memorial of the Berlin Wall Reviews
We visited the Berlin Wall but didn’t do the official tour. It is a lot smaller than I thought it would be but you could still feel the historic significance. It is fenced off so you can’t touch it... more »
This was one of the top spots of our break in Berlin! We stopped on one of the sightseeing bus tours and ended up spending 2 hours here! Was good to see so much on the area and the Berlin Wall more »
I gave it 5 stars because i found it very powerful and well made. It has a big emotional impact on you and really makes you understand what happened in Berlin. A sight worth seeing for mature audiences (14 and up I would say).
As someone who saw the wall come down, it's a real treat to visit the parts that remain as a reminder of the division and a memorial to those who died trying to escape to the west. There's so much to see and so many human stories to pour over both on the wall and the visitor centre where you can find even more in depth information about the Cold War, East Germany, the Wall and some of the people who died or caught trying to cross. A fantastic experience for someone who remembers the wall coming down.
