When the wall fell it ended the Cold War. Communism was no more in Eastern Europe, namely in Germany. It was greatly significant to the Berlin people, particularly those in East Berlin, because when the wall went up, it cut off East Berliners' only chance of escape to a better life apart from Communistic rule. West Berlin was quickly becoming one of the best European cities once again, while East Berlin had gone downhill drastically: economically, spiritually, and politically. When the wall fell it meant that the people of Berlin could once again be a whole city. West and East combined to make the complete city of Berlin once more. Although East Berlin has still not caught up completely to it's much wealthier and attractive counterpart in the West, the West has given greatly to its cause. It is becoming much easier to find jobs and a good home in East Berlin than it ever was, or was close to becoming when Communism ruled there. After the wall fell, many young people, and young families moved back into the city to start a new life, as well as many artsists of all kinds. There are still those in the East that wish communism was still there, but they are very much the minority. There is also still tension between the West and East due to how much the West has had to give up to help it's other half regain its health. Those in the West are still called Wessies and the Eastern Berliners are still called Ossies. There is now a double brick line on the streets of Berlin that traces where the wall once stood around West Berlin, as well as segments of the wall that still remain standing as a testament to what once happened in such a great city.

It marked the end of the Cold War in Europe.

The Berlin Wall separated West Berlin from East Berlin and wider East Germany and stood as a solid barrier between the Communist and Capitalist States. It was also indicative of the fact that people were fleeing from the Communist East to the Capitalist West and that the "success" of Communism was facial at best.
