The Glory Hole (as can be seen in the photo above) was just a hole but a peep from it could show the freedom on the other side.
This is how the wall looked from the free world or the erstwhile West Germany
The portion from where the wall has been removed, steel bars still represent the general alignmnet of the wall.
The junction of BernauerStraBe and AckerstraBe was the that difference between freedom and oppression. The former street led into the East Germany, while the latter ran parallel to the Berlin Wall in the free World. The building below is the first building in the East German side and must have been a KGB office - keeping a close watch on the West Germans.

This entrance has been made to go from the West German side into the East German side:
And inside are the many graffiti that shows the sentiments and desires of the East Germans. Going along the wall, one could see so many of these written by unknown artists who did it at the cost of their lives.

Photos of many unsung heroes who died in their struggle, that finally bore fruits when the wall finally crumbled
