What to expect

During this tour, you will go deeper into the fascinating and dramatic history of the Wall that divided Berlin for almost three decades and see its most important original parts. Hear from your expert guide about the history of the Cold War and the everyday life in East Berlin. Join a journey in the shadow of the Berlin Wall and find out why and how the city was divided during the Cold War, what happened on the 17th of June 1953 during the Stalinallee workers' revolt, and how the 1989 "Peaceful Revolution" and the Alexanderplatz demonstration triggered the events that led to the fall of the Wall.

The tour will start from the meeting point at Potsdamer Platz, from there, you will begin the journey that will help you understand why the city was suddenly separated into two blocks, how this was possible, and what reaction it triggered on both sides of the Wall.

The tour ends with a visit to the most famous and colorful piece of the Berlin Wall: the East Side Gallery and its 104 murals, including the now-famous kiss between Brezhnev and Honecker.
