This Free Tour will answer all your questions about the Berlin Wall: what was inside it? was it possible to escape? how did people cross it? etc. Our guides will explain everything about the Wall and show you the places where it all took place, always in a respectful but entertaining way, taking you back in time to discover Berlin's recent history.
How was the Berlin Wall built? This is the first question our tour will answer, explaining exactly how and why the wall that would divide the German capital in two was built, together with many stories about the ingenious and clever methods the people of Berlin came up with in order to escape. You'll also learn about how the Wall evolved, how the public transport was affected by its construction, and finally how it fell in 1989, and by doing so you'll have a better understanding of German history.
This Free Tour will take you to the Nordbahnhof Station, one of Berlin's abandoned stations, now home to a photographic exhibition that shows what these empty stations looked like and what they meant to the locals. We will visit the Bernauer Strasse Memorial, where we'll visit a section of the Wall that is still preserved, as well the railway tracks that replace the parts that are missing, therefore helping us visualize the original size of the Berlin Wall.
We couldn't leave Berlin without visiting the East Side Gallery and the Berlin Wall Memorial, or Gedenkstatte Berliner Mauer, a good example of why sometimes it's important to preserve certain things to avoid forgetting about them. This site was originally meant to be completely demolished, but it ended up being preserved and now it's a place for learning and remembering, home to many exhibitions and cultural events.
We will walk around the Abandoned Berlin Stations, that became unusable after the Wall was built and were therefore closed to prevent people from using them in order to escape. They are now a part of German history and as such an interesting visit. This tour offers all of this plus many more stories, surprises and small details.
Our guides will wait in Alexanderplatz, next to Primark's main entrance.
