The tour takes you from the historic site where the first border crossing allowed people to pass from the East to the West in November 1989 southwards along the former border strip. You will notice differences between neighboring residential quarters in the former East and West that last until today. Part of the former border strip has been turned into a park where a popular flea market is held on weekends. From there the tour takes you to Bernauer Strasse. This place was notorious in 1961 because people jumped from their apartment windows to flee to the West. Part of the former Death Strip has been reconstructed and can be viewed from a platform. Finally, you will learn that the Wall even affected the Berlin underground as stations were closed and trains didn’t stop anymore on several West Berlin train lines that passed through the territory of East Berlin.
