"There is not much left of Ulbricht's 'anti-Fascist protective wall'. Luckily, say it? Since ham se right, but the whole thing is now badly forgotten. And perhaps such an injustice should simply be exaggerated to your own people. This is ensured today by the Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse. Here you can still marvel at one and a half kilometers of the gray concrete wall that once surrounded the western part of the city as the Berlin Wall. The surveillance systems clearly show how badly the wall was guarded. And photos are reminiscent of the young East German citizens who died in their escape attempt. An important place, so that nüscht irjendwann means: 'Oh, in the GDR was et och janz ok.' "At the Nordbahnhof S-Bahn station, where lines S1, S2, S25 and S26 stop, your tour to the Berlin Wall Memorial begins. And this starts already after a few meters. Along the roughly 1.4-kilometer-long wall remnants, you can experience the life in the divided city up close on info boards and many pictures.At the Brunnenstraße you will reach the end of the memorial. Here you turn left and soon after you reach Volkspark Humboldthain. The park was opened in the 1860s and has since enjoyed great popularity with residents from the surrounding neighborhoods. During the Second World War, the Nazis erected two anti-aircraft bunkers on the grounds of the park, of which the northern one is still largely preserved. From the roof platform of the bunker, which is open to the public, you have a nice view. Afterwards you will reach Gesundbrunnen station, where you can take the S1, S2, S25, S26, S41 and S42 lines.
