Numerous events were held this weekend across Berlin, Germany, remembering the November 9, 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall that once divided the city. A project called "Lichtgrenze 2014" (literally "Lightborder 2014") was erected, temporarily dividing the city once more with a line of 8,000 illuminated balloons along the 9.5 mile (15.3 kilometer) path once occupied by the Berlin Wall. The weekend was capped off by a large concert at Brandenburg Gate, attended by thousands. See also The Berlin Wall, 25 Years After the Fall. [15 photos total]
