The Berlin Wall surrounded the West of Berlin from 1961 to 1989, a symbol of the divided ideologies of the times whose fall presaged the fall of Communism. Although the vast majority of the Wall was destroyed by citizens eager to tear down this terrible divide, chunk and remnants of Berlin's most famous landmark remain for the history buff to track down. Head up to Bernauer Strasse on the border of Prenzlauer Berg and Wedding District for one well-preserved section, or south of the city centre to the border of Mitte and Kreuzberg for another section, where you can also find the Wall Museum. Finally in Friedrichshain, by the river, find the East Side Gallery - a 1.3 km section of the Wall painted by artists from around the world.
