"See the wall and learn some details" Berlin Wall Tip by TempNomad

Berlin Wall, Berlin: 153 reviews and 317 photos

  See the remains of the wall.
by TempNomad

This is a very comprehensive exhibition. It's open-air, and open from 10:00 - dark. The hours are later in the summer, naturally. The text is mainly in German, but the photographs are quite explicit. For those who can read German, it's very, very interesting.

Not only can you see the remains for the Berlin Wall, but there are two separate informational exhibits located directly between the sections. It's on the excavated remains of the basements of the former Gestapo, SS, and Reich Security Offices. The display details the goings-on regarding interrogations and other ugly events. There is a free English audio-guide available.

Address: Niederkirchnerstraße 8
Directions: U-Bahn to Kochstrasse, or Potzdamerplatz, or Mitte. It's walkable from any of those. Kochstrasse is closest.
