25 Year Anniversary ‘Fall of the Wall’

25 year anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Berlin celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Wall in 1989 on November, 9

On the evening of 9 November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell. Countless Berliners from East and West wrote history that night. They climbed over the concrete walls, poured through the narrow border crossing, put their backs into chipping away at the Wall and took back the whole of their city. Images of this historic event went around the world.

Now, 25 years later, Berlin is no longer a divided city, but on its way to become a world metropolis. Millions of visitors have since made their way to the German capital to witness these changes.

2014 is a historic year for Berlin. It marks the 25th anniversary of the most significant event in recent German history: the Fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989. To remember this day, many exhibitions and events will take place.

Along the former course of the Berlin Wall a new temporary Berlin Wall will be built with thousands of illuminated balloons. More information on Berlin’s most thrilling breakthrough on wall.visitberlin.com.
