The Berlin Wall Memorial

Place of Interest Open in this Schedule (possibly closed due Covid-19 restrictions) Check location

Located at the historic site on Bernauer Strasse, the Berlin Wall Memorial extends along 1.4 km of the former border strip that separated the West from the East. This memorial is the last piece of the Berlin Wall and it honors the victims of the GDR regime.

The visits are free and it is explained the many ways the citizens tried to escape, including by tunnels or jumping from windows and roofs – and the methods used by the Regime to keep them from escaping. The Bernauer Street became a symbol of German division but also as a reminder of the end of that division, when on the night between November 10 and 11, 1989, the first segments of the wall were knocked down between this street and the Eberswalder Street.

On the side that belonged to West Berlin, there’s a Visitor Centre and a Documentation Centre with a viewing platform. The Window of Remembrance represents the deaths that occurred at the Wall while the Chapel of Reconciliation serves as a place of contemplation. It is also possible to see the foundations of the wall and the documentation displayed shows how the inhabitants lived on each side of Berlin.
