The Berlin Wall Memorial Site (Gedenkstätte Berliner Mauer-dokumentationszentrum) museum was almost seven years in the making. Many East Berliners that lived nearby wanted to forget about the wall that separated the area next to their houses. This is the only actual section of the Berlin Wall border system that is left standing in the city and offers some fascinating information about this imposing structure that divided the city for over 28 years.

Measuring 70 metres / 230 feet, this stretch of the Berlin Wall is complete, and consists of two walls with a narrow control path down the centre, where the border guards used to patrol with their German shepherds.

There were numerous people killed trying to swim to the West across the nearby River Spree, and these individuals are remembered by a series of plaques marking the names of those that were identified.

A number of permanent exhibitions are featured and these document the history of the Berlin Wall and record the famous paintings on the Western side of the division.

Open: Wednesday to Sunday 10:00 to 17:00
Admission: free
