Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

Berlin Wall Anniversary
9am Various Venues

Berlin is an exciting city to visit all year round, but if you have been waiting for the best time to make the trip, this is it. 9th November 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, and the whole city will be commemorating this with a range of exhibitions and special events.

The main and possibly most stunning feature will be the new light installation – a temporary Berlin Wall made from illuminated helium-filled white balloons. It will stretch 12 kilometres across the city centre where the Berlin Wall used to stand – along Bernauer Straße, past the Berlin Wall memorial, up to the River Spree near Reichstag, past the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz and Checkpoint Charlie, to Kreuzberg and along the River Spree, finishing at the Oberbumbrücke. In five places, the balloons will be released into the air to symbolise the fall of the Wall.

In good weather the installation should be visible from outer space, but for Berlin visitors back down on Earth there is plenty more to see and take part in, like the 12km human chain along the light installation. This line of thousands of Berliners and visitors alike will symbolise the unity of people and the destruction of borders and divisions, and you may even be able to take part in this yourself.

Other special events and museum exhibitions will focus on the division of Germany and Berlin, the Cold War, and the peaceful revolution and reunification in 1989. While in the city you can visit the GDR Museum, former watch towers, and wall memorials. Underground Berlin is also well worth a visit for tours of the underground bunkers, but get there as soon as they open on the day you want to go, because you can’t buy tickets online or for later dates, and the English tours sell out quickly.

You can also take tours, such as a GPS guided walking tour on the trail of the Berlin Wall, or a self-driven tour into the east of the city in an original GDR Trabant car. Several companies also offer guided or self-guided bicycle tours along the path of the Wall – try Berlin on Bike or Fat Tire.

With images of the events during the anniversary being shown around the world, November 2014 will be a great time to visit Berlin and revel in the history of the city. Generator Mitte and Generator Prenzlauer Berg will be serving commemoration cocktails and drink specials to celebrate! Watch this space for a list of drinks.
