Palace of Tears and its collection

Palace of Tears

The Palace of Tears (Tränenpalast) is the former train station and a crossing place between East and West Germany. Citizens from the west part of the country were allowed to travel and this was the place where they said their goodbyes to their friends and family in the east. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, the place served as a nightclub and a stage until 2006. In 2011, an exhibition was set up, explaining the consequences and the daily life of those who were affected by this event in history and shed some tears here. It displays various documents, artefacts, photos and recordings to commemorate the period.
