20th Anniversary Berlin Mauer Fall

November 9th marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin wall. There were many events taking place all around the city to celebrate the occasion, some of which I have documented here.

Giant dominoes lining a segment of the route of the Berlin Wall were toppled late in the evening. This was billed as a metaphor for the way that the real wall came down twenty years before.

During the day several people dressed as angels stood on rooftops seemingly watching down on the people of the city.

Earlier in the day an event called The Berlin Wall Of Sound took place in Mauer Park (wall park). This consisted of a 200 meter long stretch of guitarists and bassists playing to the instructions of the conductor.

In Mauer Park as well as the Berlin Wall Of Sound there was a line of photographs exhibited, some of which were taken before the wall came down.
