is a typical German meal, invented in Berlin. It consists of a fried sausage, topped with a special sauce, made from tomato paste, curry and a range of spices. It is usually served with french fries. The patent holder for the original curry sauce, Mrs. Herta Heuwer, told that she was bored in her snack bar. So she started mixing different ingredients in a large pot. The result was, what we now know as curry sauce. Today lots of snack bars sell currywurst with their own version of the curry sauce. There is even a special currywurst museum in Berlin.
(German: Berliner Mauer) which divided Germany from 1961, after World War II, into two parts and began to fall on 9th November 1989. The people in the east were finally allowed to travel to the west. Today most of the Berlin Wall has been destroyed, but a stone line which crosses Berlin where the original wall once stood, still reminds of it. The biggest remaining part of the Berlin Wall is called the East Side Gallery and is the world's longest open-air gallery. It contains street-art paintings of 118 artists from 21 countries.
