Very worthwhile stop. There is a preserved section of the border that can be seen from an observation area that is part of a display. Lots of stories and information in the display. You could easily spend at least an hour here, longer if you read the displays and listen to the stories.
Really impressive part of the berlin wall. If the iron curtain is of any interest to you, this is definitely a place you can not skip. The museum itself closes at 6, but definitely worth the visit. It gives you a small insight into the view of the wall and atmosphere.
This place is inspirational. You can imagine people trying to escape from one side to another planning their way out and visualizing those escaping spots. Exceptional experience and a must see location in Berlin.
You can just walk up to the memorial from the road and read all of the plaques in front of the pieces of the wall. I read most of them and they were very moving. The are is pretty quiet. I think I saw one walking tour there the entire time. I definitely would recommend this be the “must stop” in Berlin.
This memorial provides many personal accounts of experiences associated with the Berlin Wall. There are many photos and other pieces of memorabilia. It also allows access to a overlook (up several flights of stairs) where the wall as it existed, and segments still stand, are visible. This was a must see for me. We took public transportation here to see it. I’m so glad we did.
This is quite something. Great experience and method of educating people of all ages. The memorial is spread out over a few blocks and it is full of interactive audio and video, with plenty of signage to help explain how people lived during the time the wall kept them apart. To top it off, there is a small shop, a museum and a view point to better capture the magnitude of the wall in its entirety. Truly a must see.
It took me 3 hours to see it (75% of it) but saw the must to see, from area A to C (didn’t see the D area) The A and B areas was the best to see. With a lot of descriptions to read. Quite a sad place but i really enjoyed visiting it as i really like visiting historical sites. The visit is free. I highly recommend visiting this site if you come to Berlin (i have been there for 60 hours only)
This was okay; nice and quiet, with some good information. If you really want to experience the wall I would recommend instead going to the preserved section further along toward the centre of the city. This felt much more like a 'stopping spot' than a real historical attraction.
I started this at evening 3:30 pm and walk through all the way near by S-bahn and I stopped at each place and studied the articles over there. I knew many facts about Berlin Wall and the history at that time. Also, there clearly articulate the situation of those people at that place. Many underground bunkers created by people to escape from Russian occupied side to other side. In this many people was died and this kind of historic things well structure there. Also, we can see destroyed Wall with only iron rods and well condition wall at one place. Also, aesthetic garden with excellent look towards main road and good place for kids and adults. I strongly recommend this place to know the history and culture of the Germany.
I didn't go into the museum itself just the publicly accessible museum grounds. But, this has enough information and gives a good impression of what the wall looked like and what it meant for the city. Maybe for people really fresh to the history of the Berlin Wall the museum should be must-visit to get better informed. Perhaps on a next visit with more time on hand I will visit the museum. But, spending some time wandering the site and trying to imagine what it must have been like is a must-do when visiting Berlin
I started at the museum and picked up information in English on the outdoor part of the museum. It’s a really powerful memorial. I recommend spending just about a half hours I. The indoor part and then a couple hours walking through the outdoor part of the memorial. There are plaques with information in English and German including stories of people who lived in that exact spot. I think this place is accessible to children.
A stopping place. It has a piece of the wall, along with the death strip and small replicas. Also has a memorial wall with pictures and names of the people who died trying to cross the wall. A nice, clean grass park that allows you to also rest a little while touring the city.
Really good place to visit.. they have a part of the wall and tower still there along with the Death strip in the middle so make you go into the museum and head to the roof for a great view. There is a lot to see in the museum which I didn't see but spent most of it in the rain outside looking at the wall, the photos and videos. Well worth a trip.
Documentary centre of Berlin wall introduces a perspective on a recent historical turning point in the history of Berliners and Germany. The centre provides audio guides in several European languages, posters and pictures from those times speak more than a thousand words. The memorial also cherishes memories of brave people who tried to escape from the East Berlin regime. Recommend to learn more about history of the city.
We were not able to go all the way in? Maybe they were not open when we were there? Even though it is still a very historical and informative place. Being able to really touch and see the wall makes the stories come to life and the history truly hits you.
Well arranged tour routes and guiding system. I started in section D ended in A. If you are not familiar with Cold War history, suggest you take an hour in the documentation center. It will definitely bring you back in time to feel the sorrow and joy. The whole tour is free. Public transportation are easily accessed from all around.
I wont say anything bad about the wall, we all know why it was there and what for. A wall is a wall, and there is not much of it left and sadly it is not in good condition, however this does not take away from the fact that any trip to Berlin must include a visit to it - but only for the history associated with it.... other more historic and impressive sights to see around this city.
Nice place to visit, help us to understand more about the history. The most memorable place during our trip to Berlin. The place is preserved, so we can have better picture of the situation while the wall still exists. The place give mixed feeling, sad, empathy, and anger. Hoping every visitor get good lesson, and wisdom. Ooo
Very well done, and moving, museum about the Berlin Wall, located just in front of one of the last standing sections of the wall itself. It is a multi-story museum (there's an elevator if you don't want to walk), and there's a beautiful view point over the wall at the top. Entrance is free, and inside you find all sorts of videos, audios, stories, interviews and some objects all narrating what life was like before, during and after the well and its fall. Very educational, and highly recommended.
Best things at this monumental memorial is they have a kind of a museum that explains various events before, during and after Berlin wall. They even have audios and videos from real people who experienced the pain and different clippings from the movies. One can climb the metal stairs two flores up to see the entire or whatever that is left of the Berlin wall. Important thing g is, the museum is on the other side of the road compared to the Berlin wall. Possibility to miss it if you don't look around.
This place gives you a very good image of how things used to be in the time the wall divided Berlin. They have made it into a good display and there is a free museum where you can go to the top floor to have a good look around. From here you can also see a bit of the difference in architecture between east and west Berlin.
History preserved in a fantastic way. Coming here was an excellent educational experience and brought forth a new understanding to me of the significance the wall holds. I’m gracious that it is kept around for all of the public to see, as it’s a great way to remember and learn.
If you want to see the wall go here, don't go to the east side gallery which is crowded and just by a road with no real sense of history. Very humbling to stand in the old no man's land where so many were killed and which kept apart the people of Berlin and Europe. Surreal to read all the information and then see the locals out for walks with their dogs. I found that a nice juxtaposition. Humbling experience.
