Overview

On this Cold War walking tour through Berlin, discover the city’s Cold War-related sites and remember the nearly 45 years of political conflict that came to an end in 1991 with the fall of the Soviet Union.

Your expert guide will describe the duties of the border guards, the Soviet and Allied forces and the Stasi, as well as the CIA during the Cold War. Find out what happened to the German Democratic Republic (GDR) leadership, including Erich Honecker, Walter Ulbricht and Wilhelm Pieck. See and touch the remains of the Berlin Wall, which divided East and West Berlin for about 30 years, find out what life was like in the Eastern Bloc's most Stalinist state and hear stories about successful and failed escapes from the GDR.

As you walk from site to site, hear about the military tension between the United States and its NATO allies and the Soviet Union and its allies. See hidden areas of the Death Strip, and learn about how the MI6 and the CIA tunneled the Berlin Wall and Soviet Zone and tapped the Red Army's secret communications.

See the monumental former Soviet Embassy (today the Russian Embassy), located on the grand boulevard 'Unter den Linden' - in the heart of the enemy. See how it reflects the Stalinist architecture and stands out from those of the other structures on the boulevard. Discover intelligence points of the CIA, KGB and Stasi, and learn about their surveillance techniques and equipment. Hear about former eastern Germans in present society, from former Stasi agents to every-day citizens -- what do they miss about the GDR?
