The cold war trail in a divided city


The Cold War in Berlin
After the Nazi demise and the total destruction of Berlin, the people of Berlin witnessed American, British, French and Russian soldiers entering their city and staying for more than 40 years.
As a consequence of the loss of the second World War, Germany, and Berlin in particular, became a central location of an ideological clash involving world dominance between two huge nuclear powers - The Cold War. Berlin was a hub of spies and military activity for these big world powers, and was the home of the symbol of the cold war - the Berlin Wall.

After years of tension, on the 9th of November the people of Berlin destroyed the wall with their own hammers and apprise the end of communism and totalitarianism in east Europe and Russia.

A Recent Review of this tour

We chose the "Cold War" tour of Berlin with Nadav on our last day in Berlin. He was able to modify the tour to avoid some areas that we had already seen (but in retrospect it would have been fine if we went as we probably would have learned more about the sites from him.) The tour started on time, he gave a great overview of the time period and was able to answer our question. He gave us some great tips for visiting - especially the Panoramic view of Berlin.
