Why locals love it
The Berlin Wall Memorial is the central memorial site of the German division. It was built in a site where many people fled from the East to the West side of Berlin during the Cold War or died trying so. It is also the place where the division of Germany was peacefully overcome in 1989.
Why you should visit it
This memorial is a remarkable place to feel the atmosphere of the Cold War. The impressive documentary centre close by is definitely worth a visit for those who are interested in the consequences of the building of the wall for the city's population and its overcoming.
