Our Berlin Wall & Cold War Tour heads east along the imposing Karl-Marx-Alleebefore taking in the colorful East Side Gallery (a kilometer-long stretch of still-standing Wall, famous for its graffiti) and the powerful Treptower Park Memorial(More than 3200 fallen Soviet troops are buried here and the reliefs lining the memorial are the finest of Stalinist propaganda. It‘s off the beaten tourist path – yet quite accessible by bike). From there we return through the former no-man’s-land deathstrip to visit former checkpoints and hear tales of espionage and escape attempts. To put the Cold War into perspective we’ll timeline other important worldwide events to show how these effectively put Berlin at the forefront of Cold War tension.
We break for lunch at a nice café in the remains of an old train station split by the Wall . Lunch and drinks for lunch is NOT incl. in the ticket price!
As Berlin is a very big city and also very flat, Berlin is perfect for sightseeing on a bike. So join our Berlin Wall & Cold War Tour and see Berlin from the best way – on a bike!
