Berlin Wall

LORELAI: Wow, these will be an enormous help in planning our trip. Hey, you wanna go see the Berlin Wall?
RORY: Sounds great.

The Berlin Wall, a guarded concrete barrier that encircled West Berlin from 1961 to 1989, separating it from East Berlin and East Germany. It included guard towers placed along large concrete walls, accompanied by a wide area (later known as the “death strip”) that contained anti-vehicle trenches, beds of nails and other defenses.

You can actually see the Berlin Wall today – at least part of it. The remains of the wall have been left up as an exhibition, and it is one of Berlin’s top tourist sites.
