I was curious to know about the wall and its history,and to see how things were before Berlin was reunited.We visited both the East Side Gallery and also the museum at Checkpoint Charlie, and walked the length of the street near the hotel where the wall once stood.There is an outdoor exhibition called "Topography of Terror" which runs all the way along the route explaining information about the period of the city's division ,with many historic pictures of the Wall. It is very interesting. They also show some movies at the Checkpoint Charlie museum which are very interesting and help to give some idea of what it was like to be a citizen of Berlin at that time.
Well worth the visit.
