Berlin Wall in Mainz

Location: Theodor-Heuss bridge

1 segment

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Wall, the Axel Springer SE donated a segment of the Berlin Wall to each federal state. Rhineland-Palatinate’s segment was erected in Mainz in November 2009. The location was chosen in order to remind a visit by former US president George Bush sen., who proclaimed here on May 31, 1989: “The world has waited long enough. The time is ripe. Europe must be free and undivided.”
