Germany marks 50th anniversary of the Berlin Wall -- where to commemorate
To commemorate this historic anniversary, visitors to Berlin can learn more about the Wall in three poignant ways:
2) The German Historical Museum is currently hosting an exhibit of the photography of Thomas Hoepker and Daniel Biskup, two West German photographers who used their lenses to document life in East Berlin during and after the Berlin Wall. Aptly, the exhibit ends on October 3, Germany's Unity Day.
3) Finally, of course, there's an app for that. The Mauerguide is an app that relies on GPS to guide users along the original path of the Berlin Wall. In addition to its maps and handy walking instructions, the Mauerguide includes political and historical information about the Wall, film clips, and interviews.
