Berlin Wall in Gent

Location: Flanders Expo, main entrance

1 segment from Potsdamer Platz

Every year more than a million visitors come to the Flanders Expo, a trade fair and conference center on the outskirts of Ghent. Since 1998 there is a Wall segment standing close to the main entrance, clearly visible to all visitors.

The Wall segment came here by initiative of the senior executive Lode Anseel in the mid-1990s, when he was able to convince his employers in buying and installing a Wall segment. At the same time, Lode Ansel acquired a second one, which he set up in his own garden.
