There wasn't actually a wall between East Germany and West Germany. The border was a series of fences and other fortifications. It was normally referred to as the 'inner German border' or the 'Iron Curtain'.

The Berlin Wall was between West Berlin and East Berlin.

Note 'East Germany' and West Germany' were names used by the English-language media. The proper names of the two countries was 'Deutsche Demokratische Republik' (DDR = German Democratic Republic) and 'Bundesrepublik Deutschland' (=BRD, Federal Republic of Germany).

East Berlin was part of the DDR. West Berlin was not part of the BRD, it was a separate entity.

The Inner German Border was built to separate East Germany and West Germany. We called it the IGB. The IGB made the Berlin Wall look like a picket fence.
