Meet up with your guide in the afternoon at a pre-arranged location in central Berlin. You’ll spend your trip following the infamous Bernauer Strasse, which ran parallel to the Berlin Wall, on a Cold War-themed investigation of the city.
As you walk your guide will share insights into the history of this difficult period in Berlin history, explaining how the wall split apart families and created a culture of daring escapes and secretive spies that lingered near this famous barrier. You’ll get a look inside the “ghost stations” created when the city was split in two, and explore the abandoned buildings that played a key role in Berlin’s Cold War history.
Finish your exploration on a lighter note by checking out the Mauerpark, where you can shop for souvenirs at its well-known flea market.
