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 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.
We'll spend three and a half hours walking the streets of Berlin while we learn about the Western and Eastern Bloc secrets during the conflict in the German capital. Our first stop will be the Nordbahnhof ghost station, right on the edge of what was "the two Berlins".
Following on, we'll take in the views of the Berlin Wall at the Bernauer Strasse Memorial. The guide will tell us about some of the tensest moments that were experienced in this area during those years. You'll feel goosebumps!
During the free tour, we'll visit the Wall Documentation Museum, the Church of Reconciliation and the East Side Gallery, the best preserved section of the Berlin Wall, where the tour will end.
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.
