Berlin Wall Tickets & Tours

The Berlin Wall was built overnight, which became once an international symbol of government oppression, the Berlin Wall now represents the resiliency of the human spirit. Erected in the dead of the night on August 13th, 1961, Berliners would wake up to find they had been divided into two blocs, separated from family and friends. Nearly 4 decades and approximately 200 unnecessary deaths later, East Germans would reclaim their freedom on November 9th, 1989. Since that date, the Berlin Wall has stood as a global pilgrimage site, calling all walks of life to look upon it and wonder. It transcends race, religion, and politics as proof that no matter how oppressed a people may be, there is always hope for tomorrow.

Good to know

Best time to visit
The Berlin Wall is accessible 365 days a year, regardless of weather conditions. That said, the best weather in Berlin is from May to September, where average temperatures range from 57 to 64 degrees Fahrenheit and average humidity is at its lowest. But, keep in mind that these are also some of the rainiest months of the year in the Capital. So, you may wish to purchase an umbrella. Precipitation isn’t severe, however; and, conditions are far better than the rest of the year when average lows are near or below freezing.
Getting there
Although most of the Berlin Wall has been destroyed, small sections of the Berlin Wall can be found throughout the city. The longest and most popular segment is the East Side Gallery, which is found on Mühlenstraße. By underground, take U-Bahn line U1 to the Warschauer Straße station and walk south to Mühlenstraße. You can also take S-Bahn lines S3, S5, S7, and S75 or bus lines 248, 347, and N1 to the same station.
Money saving tips
Travelling on a budget? Don’t worry! You can still own a piece of history without paying for it. People started chipping off souvenir pieces of the Berlin Wall since their freedom was announced. And, it has been crumbling ever since. While we wouldn’t suggest producing a hammer and chisel in broad daylight, you can often find pieces of the wall that have broken off naturally. Just look down!
