Description

Explore East Berlin up close on a walking tour with a travel book writer. Learn about how East Berliners lived, what the architecture of the GDR looked like, and how life behind the former Berlin Wall looked like. Meet your guide at the Weltzeituhr or World Time Clock at the center of Berlin at Alexanderplatz. Once the heart of the GDR, see East Berlin's showpiece buildings, including the iconic TV Tower. Continue on foot towards Karl-Marx-Allee, a long and imposing stretch of road, and learn all about the history of the GDR - how it was formed, how it functioned, and how it disintegrated with the fall of the Berlin Wall. Visit key sights such as Café Moskau, Kino International, and Straussberger Platz, before stopping by the Ostel, a hotel where the German Democratic Republic lives on. Savor a typical Ossi drink, before continuing with the tour, with options to visit a store selling the vanished products of a land no longer in existence or a hidden spot showing East German architecture in its original form.
