Berlin Wall, Berlin

All around you will find remains of the wall, all covered with graffitti and so, but representing the history of that critical period in history.
There is no much wall still standing and this may be a bit dissappointing for many people. This is the largest piece we could saw, just adjacent to the Topography of Terror exhibition.
When walking around Berlin, also look at your feet below you: The outline of the Berlin Wall is clearly marked on the pavement.

The east side of the wall is a bit more barren. There might have been a sign saying, 'If you're close enough to read this, a soldier has a bead on you.'
