What makes this tour special

For over 40 years, Berlin stood divided, split in half – both politically and physically. Two Berlins existing side-by-side: one leading example of a ‘perfect’ Communist capital, the other an enclave of the West behind the Iron Curtain.

  
Discover why the city became a defining symbol of the Cold War, in this fascinating half-day tour of the sites that capture its mid-twentieth century division best. Trace the line of the infamous Berlin Wall, as your knowledgeable guide weaves together Cold War history with tales of daily life from both sides of the city.

Palace of Tears
