Berlin Wall

So much to do here but the main piece of history I wanted to see was the Berlin Wall.

This is the last stretch of the wall still standing in its original place (they've relocated some other parts elsewhere) it's about 500m long with a watchtower and secondary walls with the dead zone in the middle.

As well as a few lesser known icons of course I also had to see Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, the Hall of Tears and the Ramones museum.

Also thanks to Ganesha for a personal tour through Kreuzburg the area known for activists, hippies, artists, punks and squatters - my kind of town!
