Walk down Karl-Marx-Allee, formerly known as Stalinallee, and learn how this boulevard’s wedding cake-like architecture was designed to illustrate communist power during the Cold War. Explore the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse and get a sense of the security arrangements designed to prevent GDR citizens from reaching West Berlin. Learn from your guide about the risks that many people took to escape the notorious state security service, the Stasi, and how many lost their lives in the attempt.
Continue to the Gethsemane Church in Prenzlauer Berg, where many courageous East German civil rights activists gathered in the late 1980s to protest the regime and helped usher in the peaceful revolution that culminated in Germany’s reunification. End your walking tour at the East Side Gallery, where the longest stretch of the Berlin Wall is still intact. Explore this historic area that has now been turned into an impressive open-air artwork with more than 100 contributions from worldwide artists.

This tour was amazing. We saw many sights that we would never have been able to see on our own. The tour was four hours, and we used the Berlin metro to get to many of the sites. Our guide, Rick, was exceptionally enthusiastic about this tour he said it was his favourite one. He didn't just show us sites, he personalized the experience, and made us understand what life was like for East Berliners.

The guide (Pip) was realy nice, she knew enough history and exciting facts to make the tour worth the money. So the tour and the guide were good, but the agency Viator is not reliable. On your site you post that the tours are sold-out. This is not the case. Non of the tours were sold out.
