See the Berlin Wall, the site of Hitler's Bunker, the Brandenburg Gate and lots more. The experienced guides' superb story-telling skills weave the themes of Prussian, Imperial, Nazi, Cold War, and 21st century Berlin into a detailed narrative, using the latest historical research. On the way, meet characters who have left their imprint on the city: Albert Einstein, Marlene Dietrich, and JFK, and stand above where Hitler took his life in April 1945. Learn how and why the Berlin Wall was constructed in 1961 and see where daring escapes across it took place before its fall as a result of the peaceful revolution of 1989! The tour will last approximately 4 hours.

Walk along Bernauer Strasse, site of many remarkable escape attempts. Learn of successful and failed escapes in the face of a Border Command that would sooner follow the order of 'shoot to kill' than allow the heinous crime of 'flight from the Republic'. Discover the methods of the Stasi (East German State Security) and learn about the systems, devices and people that kept the entire East German population under surveillance for 40 years Get an extraordinary insight into what it meant to live in the GDR, the eastern bloc’s most heavily policed state.
