30th anniversary of the Fall of the Wall – The Westin Grand Berlin hosts an original piece of the Berlin Wall

Source: © The Westin Grand Berlin

A piece of the original Berlin Wall stands in front of The Westin Grand Berlin, put up to be torn down again. Take hammer and chisel and chop away on the wall segment to get your own piece of history, your own authentic memorial wall piece. An unforgettable moment, “getoppt” by berlin Streetfood Currywurst and a glass of Champagne.

On November 9th, it’s been 30 years since it happened: The fall of the Berlin Wall. And we haven’t missed it since. In addition to the national and international celebrations, exhibitions and events that take place throughout the year and beyond, the grand finale is the festival to mark the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall from 4 to 10 November 2019. Berlin will be transformed into a unique open-air exhibition and event venue. Along the route of the revolution in the city, important events of the history of 1989/90 become comprehensible at seven original locations. At these locations (Alexanderplatz, Gethsemanekirche, Brandenburger Tor, Schlossplatz, Kurfürstendamm, East-Side-Gallery and Stasi headquarters in Lichtenberg) large projections with historical pictures, films and sound installations will be shown. There are concerts, lectures, readings, contemporary witness talks, poetry slams and film screenings in addition. This impressive festival will conclude with the evening of 9 November, when the entire city will become the largest concert stage in the world, featuring renowned musicians, orchestras and bands. Berliners and guests from all over the world are invited to celebrate the festival of freedom peacefully and exuberantly. (see more at www.visitberlin.com and www.kulturprojekte.berlin)

The Wall at The Westin Grand Berlin

The segment of wall in front of The Westin Grand Berlin was part of the original Berlin Wall between the Zehlendorf district and the town of Teltow until 1989 it has been standing in front of the hotel since January 9, 2009. When it was installed, it was 1 m wide, 3.70 high and weighed 2.7 t.

Today the concrete section is about 1.20 m shorter and only 90 cm wide. Some 8,000 hotel guests have since taken up chisels and safety goggles and torn down 300 kg of the Wall, carrying off the results of their work into the world as souvenirs of Berlin
