The Berlin Wall Memorial extends along both sides of the Bernauer Strasse and is currently undergoing expansion. On the border strip that had been located in East Berlin, an open-air exhibition uses the Bernauer Strasse to explain the history of division. The memorial also includes the Monument in Memory of the Divided City and the Victims of Communist Tyranny and the Window of Remembrance. The Chapel of Reconciliation is also a part of this ensemble.
On the other side of the street that belonged to the western part of the city, the newly constructed Visitor Center and the Documentation Center with a viewing platform and the exhibition about the time when the Berlin Wall was built in August 1961. Inside the Nordbahnhof S-Bahn station the exhibition “Border Stations and Ghost Stations in Divided Berlin” documents the impact that the Wall had on the city’s public transportation system.
Bike Tour: Berlin Wall and Cold War Bike TourMuseum
A non-strenuous way to see more of the former East, more of the Wall, and more of what makes Berlin the unique city it is today, this Berlin bike tour delves deeper into the darkest time in Berlin’s history – The Cold War. Regardless if this is your first trip to Berlin of if you already feel like ‘ein Berliner’, this is a great way to see the city.
An extremely insightful four and a half hour tour, leisurely covering about 10 kilometers by bike. This pervasive tour covers why Berlin was divided and how, the Berlin Airlift, tales of espionage by both the Allies and feared East German secret police (Stasi), the downfall of communism, how Berlin is dealing with its past and much, much more.
