The Basics

On Bernauer Strasse, the Berlin Wall Memorial is made up of an original section of the wall and a gun turret. Visit the memorial and various portions of the wall on a small-group tour to learn about the area's history among other travelers, or on a private historian-led tour for an in-depth, personalized experience. Bike tours, Segway tours, and walking tours are all great ways to see the wall's various remaining sections spread across the city, as well as Checkpoint Charlie, the infamous border-crossing spot between the two sides.

Outstanding! 4hr Berlin Walking Tour
Best walking tour to date (20 July 2021)-Martin was our guide born/raised in Germany, fluent English speaker. He was outstanding, well-spoken, extremely knowledgeable. One of the best walking tours we've ever taken. Highly recommend this tour--4 hours, worth every minute.

I had Martin as our tour guide for the day. He was extremely knowledgeable about history! I had such a great time learning from him that 4 hour tour just flew by! Martin set the bar quite high for walking tour and I highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning about Berlin history.

We squeezed our young teens in the back and set out on our Trabi adventure. Saw all the sights in a whistle stop tour in our line of Trabi’s. German and English spoken. Great option for a rain-soaked day.

2.5-Hour Berlin Wall and Memorial Sites Walking Tour
Very informative and interesting our guide kept us well informed along the route told us things we would never have known

Things to Know Before You Go

  • The Berlin Wall Memorial features a visitor center, where you can get an overview of Berlin wall sites and watch a historical film, plus the Documentation Center with its exhibits and the Chapel of Reconciliation, where prayers services are held.

  • The longest and most interesting remaining stretch of the wall is the open-air East Side Gallery, set on Mühlenstrasse featuring murals painted by international artists in 1990 and again in 2009.

  • Because Berlin's reunification was so successful, it can be difficult to tell the difference between east and west in many parts of the city. Look for the double row of cobblestones to guide you along certain sections of the wall’s course.

How to Get to the Berlin Wall

The almost 100-mile-long (160-km) Berliner Mauerweg is a multi-use path that runs along the former wall, with 40 multilingual information stations posted along the way. In other parts of the city, lengths of the wall are covered in psychedelic graffiti, like that at the East Side Gallery on Mühlenstrasse. Sections of the wall also remain near the former site of the Gestapo headquarters.

Berlin Sights Along the Wall

It's ironic that Berlin's most popular attraction, for the most part, no longer exists. Because the Berlin Wall disappears and reappears around the city, you can see several of the German capital's most important landmarks as you visit the wall. Museum Island, Potsdamer Platz, and the Brandenburg Gate can be seen easily on a bicycle tour, weather permitting.
