Cold War Tour
Where was the Berlin Wall? Where was the headquarter of the GDR’s Secret Police? What did it mean to live in a divided city? These and many more questions will be answered by our guide on a tour through former East Berlin and along the former death strip. The tour focuses not only on the past but also on the trendy culture that arose around the former GDR and Cold War – such as the tourist hot spot around the former Checkpoint Charlie.

On this tour you will see, among other things:

- Socialist art as at the “Teacher’s House” or at the former Café Moskau with a replica of the Sputnik satellite
- Checkpoint Charlie and the Wall Museum
- Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Strasse with the remains of the Wall and the death strip
- East Side Gallery – the longest preserved piece of the Wall with the “Brother Kiss” between Brezhnev and Honecker
- former headquarters of the GDR’s secret police
During the tour we will stop for a visit and short walk at the open-air Wall Documentation Center with an observation deck to overlook the former death strip. Upon your request the tour may end at the GDR Museum near Alexanderplatz where you get an insight of the everyday-life in East Germany under the socialist regime.
