Step back in time and learn about the history of the Cold War in the German capital with this Berlin Wall Free Tour. You'll walk through the remains of the wall as you discover what life was like in a totally divided city.
Berlin Wall Free Tour
At the appointed time we'll meet at the Tränenpalast (Palace of Tears) in Berlin to start a free tour that will take us to some of the most important locations around the city during the Cold War.
Our first stop will be the Nordbahnhof ghost station, right on the edge of what was "the two Berlins". This history of this place will leave you with goosebumps.
Then we'll take in the views of the Berlin Wall at the Bernauer Strasse Memorial. This is the best preserved section of the 155 kilometres that once divided the German capital. Here, the guide will tell us all about the Wall, from its construction to the stories of different fugitives who risked their lives to be reunited with their loved ones - it was here that some tensest moments that were experienced in this area during those years.
We'll walk through what was then known as the 'death strip' to see the only place in Berlin where the two layers of the Wall are still intact. We'll also see the watchtower and the Church of Reconciliation.
Finally after a three hour tour we'll say goodbye.
Our free tour is only for a maximum of 6 people. If you're a larger group, we recommend booking the tour of Berlin during the Cold War.
Free tours do not have a fixed price, rather each person offers the guide the amount they consider appropriate, depending on their level of satisfaction.
