Geschichtsmeile

Geschichtsmeile

Most of the Berlin Wall is now gone and only marked with a line of bricks or a strip of metal embedded in the pavement. I was actually pretty much standing on that marker when I took this shot of a construction fence which has the history of the wall on it.

I'm not sure what's at that spot now. The google maps image (you can click on the "show this photo on a map" link below) is from 2008 - a year earlier than this photo. I've seen images that have no fence and the lot is full of crosses as a memorial to those who died trying to escape but I've also seen images of the lot filled with sand and beach chairs. They were calling it City Beach, Berlin. My guess is that some building has been built there and the fence is gone.

I'm going back to Berlin next month so hopefully I'll be able to check it out and maybe get an "after" shot.

My other photos from Berlin can be found in the gallery.
