The life in the American Sector


A major part of Berlin's contemporary history ended in the autumn of 1994 with the departure of the last American soldiers. Since their arrival in the south-western sector in July 1945, they had in many ways influenced the history and atmosphere of West Berlin.

The visit begins at the "Freie Universität" underground station, which lies at the heart of the Free University of Berlin. The university was founded with American assistance during the Berlin Blockade in 1948, and subsequently supported with generous donations thereafter.

Following the trail of Little America, an enclave of the American way of life, we will discover a typically American residential area, which is today a designated historical site, the Allied Kommandatura, the military complex and the US-Headquarters Command, as well as areas of leisure, such as the Officer's Club or the Truman Plaza.
The visit will end at the Allied Museum, which once served as the movie theatre for American families.
