* Kind of a meta example, but in ''TheWestWing'' episode "The Shadow of Two Gunmen" you can see portions of the Wall in the shots of Rosslyn [[spoiler: where the President was shot]]. This is because the scene was actually filmed [[CaliforniaDoubling outside a museum in LA, where the pieces of the wall were being displayed.]]

Finally, the Wall isn't just still in human heads - a biological research project in the early 21st century revealed that the boundaries of the territories of deer herds in the Harz Mountains still followed the line of the "inner German border", which passed through the region, even though no physical trace of the border remained.

West Berlin, the western half of the German capital city, was an isolated Western exclave inside Eastern Europe.

West Berlin, the western half of the German capital city, was an isolated Western exclave inside Eastern Europe. \n However, technically speaking West Berlin did '''not''' belong to West Germany which could be seen by such things as the draft (you ''could not'' serve in the German military as a West Berlin resident, even if you wanted to) or federal elections (Berlin sent non-voting delegates to the ''Bundestag'' that were appointed by the West-Berlin parliament rather than elected by the people)

* The 1985 spy film ''Film/Gotcha'' where college student played by Anthony Edwards gets seduced by a mysterious East European woman (Linda Fiorentino) into traveling to East Berlin. His attempt to get back into West Berlin - going through a humiliating body search at Checkpoint Charlie - is one of the funnier moments in the movie:

'''American guard''': Man, I've been wanting to do that for the last six months.
