Where was the Wall?

October 24, 2014 – 01:18 pm

Double row of cobblestones on Sonnenallee“Where was the Wall?” is undoubtedly one of the questions asked most frequently by people visiting Berlin. Many native Berliners and newer residents, however, are also interested in seeing remnants of the former border installations inside the city.

As part of its overall concept for the Berlin Wall, the Senate intends to preserve the existing remnants of the Wall and to post additional signs and information to give people a deeper understanding of their historical significance. The following projects have already been realized:

  • Marking the course of the Wall through the city center with a double row of cobblestones on public streets and sidewalks
  • References to Wall sites included among the blue signs that help tourists find their bearings

We offer three different interactive applications here on our Web site as a virtual guide from far away and before visiting these sites:

Berlin Wall Trail

Along roughly 160 kilometers, the Berlin Wall Trail follows the former course of the Wall around what was once the western half of the city. The Trail includes both the inner-city border and the “outer ring.” Aerial photos from 2004 are used as a backdrop here. more »
