Mauer Park is a preserved section of the Berlin wall with a museum and viewing platform across the street. Inside the museum you can see historical videos and read or buy books and pamphlets in just about any language. Me, I had enough of that in school, but it was interesting to see the park itself. The last time I'd been to Berlin sections of the wall still stood but had a very mundane character. This was a little different in that when they chose to make the park, they chose one of the most histoircal and best viewed sections. For instance, in the picture you will see the famous graveyard which was cut in two by the wall. You can also enter the park and see what the wall looked like from the eastern side, no graffiti or anything fun like that. The platform gives you an idea what the wall might have looked like from a sentry's point of view.
