What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Memorial of the Berlin Wall, Bernauer Strasse 111, 13355 Berlin Germany

One of the most incredible sites related to the Berlin Wall and the scene of tragic loss and brilliant escapes. The memorial itself is over 1km long and includes the only preserved complete cross-section of the Berlin Wall and Death-Strip.

Duration: 1 hour 20 minutes

Stop At: Checkpoint Charlie, Friedrichstr. 43-45, 10969 Berlin Germany

The most famous of all the Check Points it was the scene of many failed and successful escapes and also an incredible face-off between the American and Soviet forces in the Autumn of 1961.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Topography of Terror, Niederkirchnstrasse 8, 10963 Berlin Germany

The section on Niederkirchnerstrasse is the only surviving fragment of the wall in this part of Berlin. It is right next to the former-Luftwaffe Headquarters which was used during the East German Period as the House of Ministries. It is also the site of one of the more incredible escapes into West Berlin.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: DDR Watch Tower, Erna Berger Strasse Potsdamer Platz, 10117 Berlin Germany

Visit and possibly ascend the last of the "BT - variant" watchtowers that used to surround West Berlin. A rare survival saved thanks to a private initiative.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Potsdamer Platz Tiegarten, 10785 Berlin Germany

See how a desolate piece of land in, and also bounding, the death-strip has developed into a high-rise business and entertainment quarter. The rebirth of re-unified Berlin before your very eyes.

Duration: 10 minutes

We were disappointed with this. Our guide knew lots but tried to tell us far too much, consequently we spent far too long at a few places and only seemed to visit the standard tourist sites.More
