Be transported behind the Iron Curtain to a divided city of spies, intrigue, and clashing ideologies – all from the comfort of your own home using your computer. Travel the world safely, responsibly and sustainably, and interact live and in real time with a local to discover the German capital's rich culture and Cold War history.
This is a live group virtual tour – other guests will be participating at the same time. You will enter into a video call with your professional guide at 6pm Berlin time and explore the city with them. The entire tour is interactive. After each section the guide will pause to take questions. You can simply ask your question, or type it into the live group chat. You will also have access to in tour content such as photos and videos.
The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour.
Your virtual experience begins at one of Berlin's premier, and most beautiful, art galleries – still bullet-scarred from the Second World War.
We then make our way to the dark heart of Nazi Germany at the former SS and Gestapo headquarters, and walk along the most brutal symbol of the Cold War – the Berlin Wall.
Next we head to see a fleet of Trabants – East Germany's mass-manufactured 'cardboard car'.
We then cross the border at the most famous crossing point over the Berlin Wall, where a tank standoff in 1961 had the world on the nuclear knife-edge. We end the tour at the excellent 'Black Box' exhibition.
This tour starts at 6:00PM (18:00) Berlin time on Sundays.
You will need to have video calling software Zoom downloaded onto a device to participate.
