The Dutch artist initiative Wallbreakers/Muurbrekers demonstrates against the ever-new construction of border walls and expresses its hope for a world without walls.

On the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall five segments of the Wall were picked up by cargo sailing ships in Berlin and were shipped to the Netherlands. In November 2014 one of these segments was set up on the FestiWALL in Amsterdam.

The FestiWALL was organized by the Germany Institute Amsterdam and partners. It was a commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with readings, films, interviews, discussions and music.

A local TV Channel reported:

The current whereabouts of this Wall segment is unknown. Additional information can be added directly to this page via a comment. The other segments that were picked up by ship in Berlin are in Zierikzee (temporarily), Arnheim und Heerlen.
