We head away from the Mitte district and the pedestrian Cold War sights to take in more of the former East, more of the Wall, and more of what makes Berlin the unique city it is today. Our Berlin Wall & Cold War Tour travels along the imposing Karl-Marx-Allee before taking in the colorful East Side Gallery and the powerful Treptower Park Memorial. From there we return through the former no-man’s-land deathstrip to visit former checkpoints and hear tales of espionage and escape attempts.
To put the Cold War into perspective we’ll timeline other important worldwide events to show how these effectively put Berlin at the forefront of Cold War tension. This is a great opportunity to ask your guide more questions about the Cold War or the Berlin of today.
Some of the great sites on this tour include: the East Side Gallery, Karl-Marx-Allee, Treptow Soviet Memorial, Berlin Wall watchtower, and much more!
