25 years later, the 15km long siluette of the wall throughout Berlin is marked with thousands of illuminated balloons which have been lit this weekend to commemorate it.
Today marks another 25th anniversary celebration yet. It's also 25 years of the fall of the wall, the one which divided Berlin and Germany in two parts, and even the whole world. The wall built in 1961 was also known under the name of the Iron Curtain separating Europe from the communist Eastern side.
