Overview

Beginning near the Brandenburg Gate at 2:30pm, this walking tour will take you on an exploration of East Berlin to reveal how the city’s former Soviet sector became the front line of the Cold War. Trace the path of the Berlin Wall and discover the lives of those who lived behind the Iron Curtain. Head to the embassies of the major Cold War powers, visit the Palace of Tears, and learn how the Stasi, the largest spy network the world has ever seen, kept an entire population under observation for 40 years.

  • Life on the front line of the Cold War
  • Escape stories and attempts
  • Communism in the capital
  • Observation and espionage
  • Berlin Wall crossing points (the Palace of Tears)
  • Embassies of four Cold
  • War Powers
  • Ghost stations
  • Ostalgia
  • The Berlin Wall and the Death Strip

The tour ends around 6pm, either at Bernauer Straße (Mitte) or at the East Side Gallery (Friedrichshain). Group size may vary but it can be up to 35 people.
