your experience

Experience the story of East Berlin and take a look at a city that became the battleground between the USA and USSR. The guided tour takes you through the city’s many monuments and buildings that serve as reminders of a time when communism, the secret police, and the Berlin wall existed. See the Brandenburg Gate - once a symbol of Berlin and German division during the Cold War, now a national symbol of peace and unity.

Stop by The Palace of Tears, a former border crossing point at Friedrichstrasse Station in East Berlin and the only one still standing today. Learn about the significance of its name and what it meant to Berliners. See ghost stations on Berlin's U-Bahn and S-Bahn metro networks that were closed during the Cold War because they were an integral part of a transit line mostly located on the other side of the Berlin Wall. Follow your guide to Tunnel 57, a tunnel under the Berlin Wall that was the location of a mass escape by 57 East Berlin citizens. See the “death strip," the belt of gravel-covered land between the two main barriers of the Berlin Wall. Fleeing citizens who initially avoided being detected could be tracked down by following their footprints in the death strip. Visit the Chapel of Reconciliation and the Berlin Wall Memorial, the central memorial site recalling German division.

Your guide will answer some of history’s most debatable questions, was East Germany the most spied on society in the world? And did the Berlin wall fall by accident? The tour will conclude at the Bornholmer Strasse, the iconic location where the Wall was torn down by thousands of East Berliners.
