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
A must see in the City. Don't hesitate to visit. We enjoyed the time I have been talking about it and then we will send you eventually the information. Thanks for the update and the heads up. When we arrive d there at noon. The people that weren't there since one hour. After the time you need to get the car. We took the walking tour and our guide was just perfect.
Sobering place to visit. But well set up. It stretches for several miles. I would suggest for the history enthusiast to plan on an entire day here. I could have used that much time. We planned on a morning and by noon we were too rushed. It is an exceptional way to understand the history of the Berlin wall and the realities of it. Really brought the truths to light and real. In my view this is the top Berlin Wall attraction overall. The art murals by the river in the SE region is very cool and extensive. Checkpoint charlie is entertaining but quite fake. Topography of Terror was very good too. But this one was for sure the best stop overall to learn about the wall. Try to spend a day. It is mostly outside so wear a hat and sunscreen if in summer months. Rain wear outside of that.
I enjoy being there as it brought memory of what I have learnt at school. While there the wall become real and the history weight start to feel on my shoulders. Until today you can notice the difference between east and west. The memorial it's a great idea and place as it will keep people remember that it's best to be united. I do recommend everyone to go to see and experience.
Really interesting and important piece of history! It's hard to believe that so much happened right there and so recently. I think it is a must for anyone who is visiting Berlin, no matter whom you are or where you come from. There is a piece of the original wall still standing as well as a lookout overlooking what the wall and perimeter entailed with watchtower, the walls and fences. There are also the stories of people that lived right there and tries to make it over the wall, the stories of their families and friends they were separated from... the ones who succeeded and others that failed....It is a important and touching memorial for those who lived through it.
This is a must see when visiting Berlin. It is free to visit and is easily accessible using the public transport system. Within the memorial garden area there are a number of information points in English explaining about the construction of the wall. Most poiniantly there is a memorial with pictures of people, young and old who were killed trying to escape to the West. Across the road there is a small museum with a cinema, cafe, bookshop and toilets. This was a highlight if our visit to Berlin.
