What to expect

Play a city game and go on an exciting East Berlin walking tour where you will follow clues and solve puzzles to discover amazing places and local stories.

On this Berlin tour, you will uncover true escape stories from East Berlin and will visit Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, Postdamer Platz, a Watchtower and many more.

Are you ready to Escape from East Berlin?


It's 1984 and you're trapped in East Berlin. All your family has escaped on the other side of the wall and the only news you got from them is a letter with a poem you received from your brother a few days ago. Before leaving, he promised you he'll help you escape too, so now you think that the letter is the key to that.

Go on a quest to unlock the secrets of the letter and return to your family. Be careful who you trust along the way. So many people try to escape the East, but very few are successful. You must be crazy, but it's only crazy until you do it.

By following clues and solving puzzles, you will discover new places while finding out their hidden stories. Each ‘city game’, includes a mission of discovery that teleports you inside a fictional story where you’re the main character.

During your quest you will discover the stories of:

  • Leipziger Platz
  • Checkpoint Charlie
  • Brandenburg Gate
  • Memorial of the Berlin Wall
  • The Holocaust Memorial - Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
  • DDR Watch Tower
  • Gropius Bau
  • Topography of Terror
  • Gendarmenmarkt
  • Franzoesischer Dom
  • Konzerthaus
  • Pariser Platz
  • Tiergarten
