Berlin Wall and Cold War

Berlin Wall and Cold War

(Half Day/4 Hours)

The Berlin Wall is probably the most symbolic artifact of the Cold War and the so-called Iron Curtain, which once separated countries and continents. Berlin divided this border into two worlds that could not have been more different and it was much more than just “the wall”. There were mysterious ghost stations, a teardrop palace and complex border installations known as the death strip. In addition to the physical division, there was a political division, insurmountable ideological barriers, and some downright strange absurdities that could not be avoided in such an unnatural situation as the division of Berlin.



On this tour you will learn to understand the tragedy, everyday life and the challenges of life in the once-divided city. Immerse yourself in the past world of socialist East Berlin. Learn details and background information about almost incredible escape stories, the Allied tank confrontation at Checkpoint Charlie, or the Soviet monuments, which are still of great symbolic importance to this day. Visit the Brandenburg Gate, which has become the symbol of division and a symbol of German reunification. Check out the East Side Gallery, where the deadly wall has been rededicated as the longest wall gallery in the world.



This tour is flexible in terms of time and content, as a minimum duration a half-day tour of four hours is recommended. Highlights such as the Soviet War Memorial in Treptow, the East Side Gallery or the former Stalinallee can be integrated on an eight-hour full-day tour. Each tour is tailored to your interests.
