Berlin was the frontline of the Cold War. This three-hour tour* explores the people, places and secrets that kept two worlds on the brink of World War III and the wall that separated them:

  • Stasi - East German secret police
  • Life on the front line of the Cold War
  • Escape stories and attempts
  • Communism in the capital
  • Observation and espionage
  • Berlin Wall crossing points (the Palace of Tears)
  • Embassies of four Cold
  • War Powers
  • Ghost stations
  • Ostalgia
  • The Berlin Wall and the Death Strip

...and much more!

Explore Berlin’s former Soviet sector, a Cold War battleground and foundation of Communist East Berlin. Learn of life behind the Iron Curtain, and see how the DDR and the Stasi, the largest spy network the world has ever seen, kept an entire population under observation. Trace the CIA & KGB spy stories at the US and massive former Soviet embassies.
