Berlin Wall Memorial
First erected in 1961, the Berlin Wall consisted of layers of barbed wire, concrete barriers and guard posts to keep the citizens of East Germany from fleeing to the west. It served as a backdrop for some of the most famous moments in the city’s history, including President Kennedy’s famous speech with the stirring line, “Ich bin ein Berliner.” It was also the setting of smaller moments of heroism by those who braved the dangers and attempted to escape East Berlin. The Berlin Wall Memorial is a 1.4-kilometer stretch of the wall that remains standing and brings this history to life. The East Side Gallery is a separate 1.3-kilometer section that was moved to a location along the River Spree to preserve some of the street art painted on the wall when it was still standing.
