The Allied Military Government in Berlin (1955-1990) was a period when the Allied Military Government of Germany continued to be in force in the city of Berlin, despite the fact that military occupation had ended in both West Germany and East Germany in 1955. Berlin became a part of the Federal Republic of Germany on October 3, 1990 with the reunification of Germany. Formal Allied control was finally disbanded on May 15, 1991.
