Brussels, B – Parc Leopold

Berlin Wall in Brussels

Location: Parc Leopold, in front of the European Parliament

1 segment from Potsdamer Platz

 

It took three years to find a suitable location: The Wall segment in Parc Léopold was donated by EU Commissioner Michaele Schreyer to the capital of Europe. It symbolizes the end of the Cold War, the unification of Europe and the beginning of the EU expansion. It was set up in April 2004 and is clearly visible from the offices of the European Parliament and the Committee of the Regions.

1999 Michaele Schreyer was given the segment by friends as she left the Berlin Senat.
