What to expect

When Germany was reunited in October 1990, the Cold War ended and a nation, East Germany, officially disappeared. This tour will transport you back to East Berlin, a place now shrouded in mystery and nostalgia, to reveal a vivid picture of daily life behind the Iron Curtain.

This 3­-hour tour explores the surviving monuments of the East German regime including the infamous Berlin Wall and Stasi headquarters. A historian will reveal the dialogue between modern Berlin’s built environment and its dark and often hidden history. You’ll hear about life under Communist rule, the East Germans’ growing discontent and their government’s brutal suppression.
