Berlin City Museum

In more than 50 rooms, this popular museum explores the history of Berlin, from its origins to the present.

The Berlin Wall was a powerful symbol of the 28-year division of Germany. After the peaceful revolution in the GDR and the reunification of Berlin, the Wall disappeared almost overnight from the Berlin cityscape.

The Berlin Wall segments on display in front of the Märkisches Museum, with their original paintings on the side that once faced west, are integrated into the museum grounds like other fragments of historic or artistic significance.

Open Tuesday and Thursday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday from 12 noon to 8 p.m.
