A significant frontier point between the capitalist West and communist East, when Berlin was split into two halves. See the contrasts within the same city, hear its stories of surveillance, and witness the areas of fortification as you trace the line of the Wall and understand more about the 40-year conflict.

Following WWII, Berlin became the battleground of the Cold War. When the Wall was raised, the city was sliced in half – some guard towers and tank traps are still standing. Life under the Stasi (the Ministry for State Security) was brutal; hear what everyday life was like for East Germans, who lived under constant observation. Those who attempted to escape are now indelibly imprinted into history and legend.

Listen to intriguing and thrilling historical accounts of espionage from an era renowned for its spies. As your guide illuminates this city that the KGB and CIA used as a key battleground, contemplate these troubled times and reflect on the resulting scars that still remain today.
