Berlin Wall Memorial experience

Tour, Café, Disabled access.


The Memorial of the Berlin Wall / Memorial Bernauer Straße, the Chapel of Reconciliation, the Documentation Center, the Open-Air Exhibition, the exhibition in the S-Bahn station Nordbahnhof and the Visitor Center together form the Ensemble Memorial of the Berlin Wall. The area stretches over 1.4 kilometers on the former border strip.

Furthermore, the monument belongs to the memory of the divided city and the victims of communist tyranny and the window of remembrance. The window of remembrance portrays the 130 people who were shot dead or injured at the Berlin Wall.
You can visit the Chapel of Reconciliation and exposed foundations of a former residential building.

The facade of the residential building formed with the border wall up until the beginning of 1980. Opposite the memorial, in the former western part of the city of Berlin, is the visitor center and the documentation center. You can also climb an observation tower. Before opening the border, people from West Berlin could climb this tower to "look" to the east.

The exhibition "Border and Ghost Train Stations in Divided Berlin" is shown in the S-Bahn station Nordbahnhof, directly at the memorial site. It is hard to imagine today what impact the divided city had on the transport network.

The Berlin Wall Memorial is one of the top 10 attractions of the city of Berlin.
