"Bernauer Strasse" Berlin Wall Tip by mvtouring

Berlin Wall, Berlin: 153 reviews and 313 photos

 
 

I did not visit Bernauer Strasse, as I did not think that emotionally I would be strong enouh to visit t. My brother-in-law however did. We were told that this was one of the most notorious stretches of the Wall. Originally, there was a line of apartment blocks on the eastern side of Bernauer Strasse, but after the wall went up these buildings were used as conduits for escape, so the East German authorities had them dismantled and replaced with a lethal "death zone" of guard towers and machine gun emplacements.
