Tour the streets of Cold War Berlin

Come with us and experience the time of Kennedy, Khrushchev, Gorbachev and Reagan, when the USA and USSR came face to face every day, when there were guards standing over the Berlin Wall, and escape tunnels running beneath it.

Dive into Berlin’s divided days and take a hard look at life with communism, secret police, and the Berlin Wall. Why did Germany split into two countries? Did the Wall really come down by accident? Was East Germany really the most spied upon society in history? Our expert guides answer all these questions and more as we take you back in time to tour a city torn in two.
