Berlin is the capital and largest city of Germany, noteworthy for its parks, museums, and historical sites. A wall divided the city into East and West Berlin for 29 years from 1961 to 1990. The wall was torn down, and the city became one again when Germany reunified. Pieces of the wall and related souvenirs are still sold where the wall used to stand.
