An open-air exhibit details the fall of the Berlin Wall. Located at the developing “Campus for Democracy” at the former headquarters for East German state security or Stasi in Berlin.

As a part of the developing “Campus for Democracy” at the former headquarters of East Germany’s state security, or Stasi, in Berlin, an open-air exhibit details the fall of the Berlin Wall and the peaceful revolution Berlin that helped bring about German unity.

Called Revolution and Mauerfall (“Fall of the Wall”), the Berlin Wall exhibit occupies the courtyard of the former Stasi campus at Magdalena Street in Berlin’s Lichtenberg district. Overlooking it is the Stasi Museum Berlin and the newer Stasi Archives Berlin.

The beauty of this open-air exhibit is that it’s open 24/7 and is always free. Audio guides for the exhibits in both German and English, however, are only available during the open hours of the “Infopoint” informational center, from 10 a.m to 6 p.m. Guides are available in German, English, Italian and French, plus there is a simplified audio guide available for children and young adults, all for just 1 Euro each. And group tours are available upon request.

Covering 1,300 square meters (nearly 14,000 square feet), the panels wind through the courtyard, telling the story with plenty of photos of the so-called peaceful revolution from the earliest protests and demonstrations to the fall of the Berlin Wall and German unity.
