Description

We'll leave by coach for the Documentation Center at the Berlin Wall Memorial. Located at 111 Bernauer Strasse, its main aim is to explain the political and historical context of the building of the wall. There are exhibitions in German and English, a panoramic platform allowing visitors to view a section of the wall rebuilt with its No Man's Land, digitized archives with original documents, audio terminals playing information that was broadcast by radio stations in the East and West at the time, as well as themed workshops. One of the priorities of the Documentation Center dedicated to the Berlin Wall is to maintain a collective political and historical souvenir. Afterwards, we'll continue to the East Side Gallery - classified as a historical monument since 1991 - the remaining 1.3 km-long section of the former inner wall. Decorated by artists from the world over, it is known as the largest open-air art gallery. It is also the largest section of the wall that was saved from demolition.
