Other key sites
Traces of Berlin’s division are visible today not only at the former crossing points and memorials. Sections of the Berlin Wall have been preserved on the grounds of the foundation Topography of Terror, for instance, and at the East Side Gallery on Mühlenstrasse, famous all over the world, where a long section of the former inner wall was painted by artists after the Wall had fallen.
Other places in Berlin, such as Brandenburg Gate or Potsdamer Platz, show less evidence of the city’s division than one might expect. Here the city was more interested in effecting visible reunification of its two halves by reconstructing Pariser Platz and laying out a modern business and shopping district at Potsdamer Platz.
