Get an authentic feel of East Berlin on a guided half-day walking tour. On this tour perfect for history buffs, see the German capital's top attractions, including the Berlin Wall, Alexanderplatz, and the headquarters of the secret police. Learn from your guide how the German Democratic Republic (GDR) was formed after World War II and remained until the end of the Cold War, and learn what life was like for citizens of the GDR during the war.

Description:
On this historical walking tour, learn all about Berlin and the Cold War as you follow your guide to Berlin’s top sites. Learn about the two sides of Berlin that remained for 40 years after World War II: one a bastion of the West behind the Iron Curtain and the other a capital city vying to demonstrate the superiority of communism.

Begin your tour at Hackescher Markt train station in East Berlin at 10am. From there, head to the Berlin Wall memorial and get a sense of the security arrangements designed to prevent GDR citizens from reaching West Berlin. Learn from your guide about the risks that many people took to escape the notorious state security service, the Stasi, and how many lost their lives in the attempt. Continue to the Bornholmer Strasse to see the spot where the Wall fell in 1989 and hear the story behind this historic event.

Walk down Karl-Marx-Allee, formerly known as Stalinallee, and learn how this boulevard’s wedding cake-like architecture was designed to illustrate communist power during the Cold War.

Then visit the former headquarters of the Stasi, East Germany’s terrifying secret police, and learn how the East German state increasingly spied upon its own people, creating a system of complete government control over its citizens.

Conclude your tour at Alexanderplatz, the site of the iconic TV tower in the heart of the former East German capital.
