Berlin is famous for its Wall - built by East German authorities in 1961 and torn down by the people in 1989 - yet the city also has a second, lesser known wall: the original city wall dating back to the 14th century. The remains of the medieval wall run along Waisenstraße in the district of Mitte, and although not as impressive as in other European cities, the ramparts still create a genuine old city touch that is otherwise difficult to find in Berlin. The most atmospheric part of the wall is located close to the Parochialkirche where several medieval houses back onto the wall. One of these old town houses contains Berlin's oldest restaurant - Zur letzten Instanz - a great place to sample a bit of typical Berlin fare.
