The division of Germany had a greater impact on Berlin than on any other city. Centrally located, the Berlin Wall Memorial ensures that this era will never be forgotten. The open-air exhibition runs for 1.4 kilometres along the former border strip. On Bernauer Strasse, a section of the original Berlin Wall conveys an impression of the former border fortifications. Information points allow visitors to understand how the Berlin Wall was constructed and what consequences it had for the local population. The victims of Germany’s division are also commemorated here.
