Explore the former Soviet sector of Berlin and experience the results of the city's 28-year separation. Learn about life on the East side of the wall, hear of the largest spy network ever known, and see how the city is now using the remnants of this bygone era to its cultural advantage.
Berlin’s significant role as a Cold War battleground has left deep scars. Visit important historical monuments as you journey through the former Communist half of the city. Stroll down Karl-Marx-Allee and observe the striking postmodern architecture so emblematic of the Soviet era.
Listen to your guide describe life behind the Iron Curtain, under the Stasi's watchful eye. This era also produced many tales of espionage. Hear about the competing campaigns of the KGB and the CIA.
Imagine the emotional moments in the “Palace of Tears,” the border crossing where families were torn apart, some forced to remain in East Berlin. At the East Side Gallery, one of the last remaining stretches of wall still standing, admire the 100 or so pieces of politically charged graffiti.
An informative and poignant tour with your knowledgeable guide allows you to reflect on the difficulties faced by the city and its inhabitants not so long ago.
