Know More about this tour

Meet your historian guide at the Berlin wall memorial on Bernauer Strasse. On your 3-hour tour, youll walk the route of the wall through the city center and learn about the construction, purpose, presence and demise of one of the most famous walls in the world.

Erected in 1961, the Berlin wall was a concrete barrier dividing the city in two: the free West and Sovietrun East Germany. The Iron Curtain, as it came to be known during the Cold War, ran 97 miles (156 km) around the three western sectors of Berlin and 27 miles (43 km) directly through the city center. But it wasnt just a physical barrier; it came to represent an ominous symbol of the ideological divide between Western Europe and the Eastern Bloc for more than 25 years.

Visit memorials, exhibitions, artworks and landmarks along the wall to get a sense of the scale and nature of Berlin's division. Witness remains of the wall, see a preserved East German watchtower, discover the symbolism behind the rabbit artwork along Chausseestrasse street, and visit the Nordbahnhof S-Bahn ghost station, a West Berlin subway station once deserted and guarded by soldiers or police.

Your guide will unravel the complex social, cultural and political history of the Berlin Wall, reveal the realities of life behind the Iron Curtain, and show you the searches, patrols, observations and checkpoints once rampant in this turbulent area. The drama culminates with the walls collapse in late 1989, leading to the reunification of Berlin.

But the story doesnt end there, youll also explore how the walls history shapes the identity of Berlin. Should this history be erased from the citys map, or etched indelibly into its memory? Continue pondering this debate after arriving at the tour's end point, near the Berlin Wall Memorial.
