Berlin events to celebrate a world without walls

THE 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall will take place on November 9, and already visitors are flocking to Germany's capital city to mark the historic occasion.

A host of events have been planned for the coming months to remember the division of Berlin, the Cold War, and the days leading up to the reunification of Berlin in 1989-1990. Visitors will have a chance to gain an insight into the significance of the Wall for its city's residents. Events will include guided cycling tours along the Wall, visits to the former watchtowers, the East Side Gallery and a tour of former East Berlin in an East German Trabant car. A high point will be in the autumn during the weekend of November 9, when a special light installation will be set up along the former course of the Wall as a "symbol of hope for a world without walls".
