Berlin Wall tour by former GDR political prisoner

Theme: History

Activity organised by
approved guide


This tour takes you along a part of the course of the former Berlin Wall, where you will find out how the Wall was built, changed and which traces it has left. Hear about the many escape attempts, the victims of the Wall and life in the divided city. I can also tell you about my own failed attempt to leave the GDR. I was sentenced to prison and finally released to West-Germany.

Today, the Chapel of Reconciliation commemorates the victims of the Wall and the former Church of Reconciliation, that was blown up to get a bigger border strip (death strip) for East-Germany.

Several original pieces of the Berlin Wall and the border system are displayed in the Wall Memorial.
