This is a long graffiti wall, a historical product of the separation of East and West Berlin. Now it has been preserved for a short period. Some of the pictures above become the witness of history. Through these pictures, we can see what people were thinking at that time. The funniest thing is that on a graffiti wall there is a Chinese character "Certificate Processing".
The Berlin Wall, officially known as the Anti-Fascist Defence Wall, was built on August 13, 1961, covering a total length of 155 kilometres. At first, the border fence was made of wire mesh and masonry. Later, it was reinforced as a border defence facility consisting of watchtower, concrete wall, open zone and anti-vehicle trench. The Berlin Wall is a symbol of the division of Germany and an important landmark building of the Cold War.
When you come to the Berlin Wall Memorial Park, you have to mention the history of the Cold War era. East and West Berlin, where the complete 220-metre Berlin Wall is preserved, although it looks ordinary, the bulletin boards along the road will remind people of that period of history, divided Berlin.
The Berlin Wall is a symbol of the division of Germany and an important landmark building of the Cold War. On November 9, 1989, the Government of Democratic Germany announced that citizens were allowed to apply for visits to the Federal Republic of Germany and West Berlin, and the Berlin Wall was forced to open. In June 1990, the Government of Democratic Germany formally decided to dismantle the Berlin Wall. Now the Berlin Wall Memorial Park is built on the original site of the Berlin Wall.
This is the first scenic spot we have just arrived in Germany, next to the North Station of the Metro. We arrived at more than 4 p.m., the weather was slightly cloudy. Compared with the interest of the eastern gallery and the educational and commercial atmosphere of Charlie's checkpoint, this Berlin Wall site is more shocking and worthy of quiet appreciation and reflection. It is only decades ago that history has isolated similar people and created two completely different worlds, but we can only restore these scenes of life a little through these relics and multi-narrative history. For the first time, because of facing up to history, I feel small. For me, a layman in history, I really get an unprecedented sense of shock. Maybe it is this scenic spot that can bring us more positive significance to let human beings learn to reflect and humble.
The Berlin Wall in the long river of history, only this section, from time to time, collides with people's memories. At present, it has become a graffiti wall for all kinds of artists who have applied for permission to come here to create, interpret this history from different perspectives, or miss or irony or inspiration. Knowing it carefully, the graffiti here will be upgraded every year. As it happened, I came here a few days later because of the chance meeting, and I met the scene of cleaning up the barbaric work.

The product of the post-World War II cold war is a must for those who like history to come here to see the old site of the Berlin Wall and see what Berlin looked like during the cold war. The East German secret police in East Berlin were horrible. In a word, it has a sense of history and characteristics of the times.
Later, he went to the famous Berlin Wall, which was no longer the boundary between East Germany and West Germany. It has become a good platform for all kinds of artists to show peace, beauty and art, and attracted thousands of tourists to receive education and edification of peace and art.
It's worth visiting. Graffiti has different styles and colors. It's free to park on the roadside. On the other side of the Berlin Wall is the Spray River. The scenery is pleasant. The old Spray River Bridge and the yellow light rail show the vitality of the city.
