Full description
The history of the Berlin Wall still seems incredible today. A visit to Bernauer Straße is therefore a must-see during a trip to Berlin. Only here can you see the former division of the city with your own eyes as you visit the death strip with two walls and the watchtower.

But above all, it is the personal, often tragic stories of divided Berlin that touches many people. Embark on a small journey through time to discover places where people lived, hoped, and freed themselves from the dictatorship.

Discover exciting facts about the border, which divided Europe and even the world for a long time until the people courageously put up resistance against the deceitful regime.

After the tour you will have the opportunity to stroll through Prenzlauer Berg, go shopping along Kastanienallee, visit one of the many restaurants and cafes, or visit the popular Mauerpark with its graffiti art.
