I was an exchange student to Soltau, Germany back in 1986 (West Germany then), and had the opportunity to spend a week and a half in Berlin. Wish I could have seen the wall coming down in person, just missed it by 3 years. The host family I stayed with while I was in that city had a very interesting story about the wall, as my host father was a chemical engineer, and escaped East Berlin through a tunnel. In fact, it was the largest escape pulled off, and I read quite a bit about it while I was at the Checkpoint Charlie museum on the border.
