The Communist Past and Private Life in the GDR


How was life in the East Berlin? How did the average East German live? What happened to those who did not conform?
Was it really a classless scociety? How did the two Germanies see eachother? Exactly what events lead to its fall? And, how did the two Germanies manage to grow together?

You will see and touch parts of the The Berlin Wall. This montrous sturcture, 12ft. tall, symbol of the Cold War which began in the summer of 1945, has had one of the greatest impacts on the history of the 20th century.

Discover what life was like behind the wall. Visit a typical East Berlin neighbourhood to get a feel of what daily life was like before 1989. You will visit the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse where tunnels were dug in desperation and you discover what ghost stations are. Upon request you will see the ominous Stasi (secret police) Museum.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a great time with Karin and Yorgen (our driver) - visited off the path sites, so much information to take in, Karin really knows her stuff but Yorgen was my car guy (Mercedes, Audi etc). I would not hesitate one instant to recommend this tour guide. The concentration camp was our favorite albeit very disturbing site. We even received a history lesson on our hotel. 5 stars
