The Berlin Wall Memorial commemorates the division of Berlin by the Wall and the victims of the Berlin Wall. The national monument, a 70-meter-long original section of the border fortifications, was rebuilt in 1998 by the Federal Republic of Germany and the State of Berlin on Bernauer Strasse (parts of the wall come from other sections) and later expanded. Today the memorial includes an outdoor exhibition, the Chapel of Reconciliation, the Berlin Wall Documentation Center, the Window of Remembrance as well as the visitor center and an exhibition in the neighboring S-Bahn station Nordbahnhof over a length of 1.4 kilometers on the former border strip.
