Tour Description:

Berlin was the city that defined the Cold War. With capitalism on one side of the Wall, and communism on the other, the Berliners had to learn how to live in a divided city. This tour will take you through the history the Berlin Wall’s construction, daring escapes to West Berlin, tragic failures, and how the East Germans brought the inhuman communist machine to its knees with peaceful protests in 1989.

On this tour you’ll visit ‘Stalinallee’, a grand boulevard built in the early days of the East as a monument to the Man of Steel, Stalin. Your guide will take you to the fascinating Berlin Wall memorial, where part of the “Death Strip” has been reconstructed to show you what divided Berlin really looked like. You’ll head deep into the East to see the former headquarters of East Germany’s terrifying secret police, the Stasi, history’s most pervasive spying operation, and you’ll see what was perhaps East Germany’s most ambitious architectural project, the enormous TV Tower.

Of course you will also be brought to the place where the East German regime finally collapsed, where thousands of East Germans burst through to West in November 1989, bringing 28 years of separation to an emotional end; Bornholmer Strasse.

Starting point: Neue Promenade 3 (In front of STARBUCKS)
