It’s been 25 years since the Berlin Wall, which separated west and east Berlin from 1961 until 1990, fell. Constructed by the German Democratic Republic (GDR) the barrier officially referred to as the “Anti-Fascist Protection Rampart”, implying that neighbouring West Germany had not been fully de-Nazified.

In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the fall a light installation, “Lichtgrenze” (light border), a symbolic frontier of lights consisting of thousands of white balloons will weave through the city recreating a 15km long segment of the former course of the wall that once separated Berlin.

If you’re in Berlin this week, don’t miss out this historical event and take a stroll along the LICHTGRENZE that passes the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie. The frontier will create unique images on the streets, bridges and squares and also marks the changes that Berlin went through to become the Berlin we all know: a creative and exciting city, future orientated and international.

On 9th of November, the actual day of the fall, the balloons (with messages attached to them) will be released by their patrons. This light installation is part of a series of interactive programs –  such as an open air exhibition that will show hundred Wall stories – held to mark the 25th anniversary.
