Somewhere between 24 hours and 24 years, depending on what you mean by the Berlin Wall.

The Berlin wall construction started in August 1961 (57 years ago), but it took several weeks, likely months, to fully seal the complete length of 156 km (96 miles) surrounding West Berlin.

The Irish border is more than 3 times as long: 499 km or 310 miles, depending on your choice of measurement units.
