|Today, only a few fragments of the Wall are left, in different places of city not really near to each other.
The tour starts at Potsdamer Platz and we pass the –formerly Eastern– Government district where once the secret decision to build a wall dividing the Soviet sector of Berlin from the sectors of the Western Allies (U.S., British and French) was taken. Around the corner, in Niederkirchnerstraße, there is the longest remaining inner-city section of the Wall. Watchtowers and other elements record the past of the zone along the Eastern side of the Wall formerly known as “death strip”.
We stop at the Wall Documentation Centre and climb a platform to observe the former border zone with an authentic part of the Wall and the monument erected to remember the over 1000 victims. But you will hear gripping stories about how people tried and managed to escape from the GDR.
On Karl-Marx-Allee, the pompous alley where propagandistic parades took place, you will get an impression of Socialist Germany and its distinct architectural style. Afterwards, we will drive along the longest remaining section of the Wall that was turned into an open-air gallery in the nineties.
After this tour, the history of the Berlin Wall will no longer hold any secrets for you.
