Dokumentationszentrum Berliner Mauer
The Dokumentationzentrum Berliner Mauer is a documentation centre dedicated to the Berlin Wall, part of the preserved monuments at the Bernauer Strasse site in Berlin-Wedding.
Admission is free and this is an excellent opportunity for a great “Wall package” with the stretch of Wall accessible through a small park just opposite. The exhibition includes the chronological presentation of the events leading up to August 1961, when the Wall was erected, as well as a re-creation of the “death strip” between East and West Berlin where nearly 200 GDR citizens lost their lives attempting to flee to the West. Drawing on a number of media, the re-creation includes the whole scenario of watchtowers, guards and guard dogs, barbed wire and mines required by what was known in East Germany as the “Anti-Fascist Protection Barrier”.
