Berlin Wall Memorial - Review
Berlin Wall is one of the biggest historical landmarks in the history of not only Berlin but the entire world. Berlin Wall was initially built to keep out capitalism and protect Berlin and the city from outside forces. Overtime, the Wall saw a lot of attempted escaped and more than a hundred deaths in the process. In 1975, the wall was recreated from roughly 45,000 slabs and today Berlin has the major part of the remaining wall which was built under Soviet Pressure. You can still feel the intensity of the US and Soviet face off once you are at this wall memorial. In all, Berlin Wall marks a very significant place on the historical map of Berlin-which is tragic and enriching at the same time. Berlin Wall tours cover a lot of other monuments as well. This memorial is a place to understand the history and relive the sacrifice of Berliners.

Berlin Wall Memorial, Berlin Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
