Forgotten stretches of the Berlin Wall

The Berlin Wall has still not revealed all its secrets: only in 2018 were two forgotten sections of the Wall (re)discovered.

The Berlin Wall separated West Berlin from the communist Eastern Bloc until the Wall collapsed in 1989.

At the Schönholz S-Bahn station, amateur historian Christian Bormann came across an 80-meter-long brick wall at the beginning of 2018. It is said to be one of the only remains of the Wall from 1961. This part of the wall would have been built from the remains of bombed houses during the Second World War.

Interior wall

In August 2018, a 40-meter-long strip of inner wall was discovered along Ida-von-Arnim-Straße. For years, it lay buried under bushes and trees until the site was plowed to create the "Südpanke Park."

You can still see three lampposts on the concrete slabs, which once illuminated the path where troops patrolled. The piece of wall was promptly protected as a monument.
