Overview
Explore the history of a wall that divided a continent on a 3.5-hour Cold War history tour of Berlin. See remnants of the wall at the East Side Gallery, go to Checkpoint Charlie, and learn about life in Berlin when the city was divided into East and West.
What to Expect
Travel back to the not-so-distant days when the Berlin Wall divided a city, nation, and continent on a private walking tour of Berlin, and learn how the city became the front line of the Cold War.

Even today, the Berlin Wall scars the city, and your local guide will explain how and why it was built. Learn about dramatic escapes and hear intriguing spy stories as you cross Checkpoint Charlie and follow the route of the Wall through the formerly divided city.

Pass the embassies of the Allied forces and stop at the symbolic Brandenburg Gate, icon of the divided years. At the Palace of Tears, learn how families were separated from each other and the very personal impact the wall had on the city's population.

End at the Bernauer Strasse Memorial, where poles mark and memorialize those who died trying to escape. Alternatively, end at the East Side Gallery on Mühlenstraße, where a 0.75-mile (1.3-kilometer) stretch of the Wall exists as a reminder, and 105 paintings by international artists document the politics and everyday life of the Wall and Cold War.
