On Nov. 9, 2014, Germany celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the wall and the end of the Iron Curtain on Nov. 9, 1989. After 25 years only a few remains of the wall remind of the about 160 kilometers (about 100 miles) long border which surrounded the west part of Berlin. At the remembrance site Bernauer Strasse some hundred meters of original wall parts still exist. The barricade consisted of two walls and a so-called 'death strip' in between where dogs patrolled and East-German border guards where allowed to use their weapons to stop people who tried to escape to the West.

The Berlin Wall — the infamous landmark of separated Europe — fell Nov. 9, 1989 after dividing Communist East Berlin from capitalist West Berlin for more than 28 years.

Only a few sections of the more-than 160-kilometer (100-mile) long Wall remain standing where they once were — most other parts were torn down after Germany's reunification in 1990 and removed.

The photo gallery — consisting of 11 images — features the Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse with former watch towers over the so-called "death strip" of the border, and the East Side Gallery — the Wall's longest surviving stretch. The 1.3 kilometers (more than 4/5 mile) segment with its colorful murals is a tourist hotspot in today's Berlin.
