The Documentation Centre known as Dokumentationszentrum Berliner Mauer is one of three integral elements which together make up the Gedenkstatte Berliner Mauer – Berlin Wall Monument at Bernauer Straße – combining a stretch of the former Berlin Wall, the Kapelle der Versöhnung (Reconciliation Chapel) and, across the road, the Documentation Centre itself.

This is an important source of information and an original documentary source/archive devoted to the history of the Berlin Wall. A multimedia presentation draws on the local historical experience at Bernauer Strasse, exploring varied aspects of the political background and historical detail surrounding one of the most poignant and significant events of the Cold War.

The street’s unique position cut into two sides by the Wall with East Berlin buildings on one side and a pavement/sidewalk on the side of West Berlin evoked the madness of the concrete Wall dividing the city.

Information panels are in German and English.
