The Bradenberg Gate is a former city gate and one of the main symbols of Berlin and Germany.

In 1963 President Kennedy visited the Gate
In 1987, President Reagan demanded that President Gorbachev tear down this Wall

The Fall in 1989

The Berliner Dome
This is where many Berliners call home
It is located adjacent to Lust Garden
A sanctuary for arts and science, that's why Berliners call this Museum Island.

I'm standing in Pottsdam Platz, embracing the Berlin Wall
For 30 years, the wall stood impenetrable, so long, so tall
The wounds inflicted here were so painful, so deep
Scars that will never go away, memories that we will always keep

* Between 1949 and 1961, nearly 2.5 million East Germans left to start new lives in the West.

Here we are in the center of history for Prussia and Germany, the Brandenburg Gate

Sitting on top of the Wall is the Quadriga, a symbol of triumph of peace not war and hate

In 1987, President Reagan ordered Gorbachev to "Tear down the Wall."

Two years later, citizens from both the east and west passed through, the beginning of a reunited Germany and democracy for all.

The Jewish Memorial

On 4 November 1989, the largest demonstration in Germany
They wanted democracy now
They made it perfectly clear
