About the tour

This 45min tour takes you along the Wall Memorial which is located at Bernauer Strasse, which until reunification, marked the division between East and West Berlin. Besides a very haunting "Window of Remembrance" which commemorates those who lost their lives trying to cross the infamous wall that divided the city for 28 years, you'll not only get to see original remnants of the actual Wall, but the tour provides you with a real sense of what the perfidious "death strip" looked like and what it consisted of. This tour is a must for all those interested in the Cold War and the division of Germany following WWII.


Meet your local guide

Martin

Berlin’s stunning landscape can stupefy you. Home to over 200 parks, forests and green spaces, and over a hundred lakes - replete with beautiful lidos and sandy beaches - it’s one of the greenest cities in the world. Martin helps you discover all this, and more! Having experienced the fall of The Wall first hand, Martin lived abroad between 1994 and 2010 and experienced a potpourri of different cultures. At university, he explored German history and studied German-Jewish exile organizations that emerged as a result of the rise to power by the Nazis. Following his graduation, he was then offered to contribute to the exhibition “Eichmann on Trial”, organized by Berlin’s Topography of Terror. This led Martin back to Berlin, and he re-discovered the city he had left long ago. Fascinated by Berlin’s total make-over, he decided to turn his rekindled fascination with Berlin into his profession. Since then, his tours have been peppered with adventures and exciting stories, ranging from European cultures to celebrities like Marlene Dietrich. “I once gate-crashed the building where David Bowie used to live in Berlin with a customer who was a huge David Bowie fan and ‘bumped’ into a resident who promptly invited us to have coffee!” he says.

Martin has been guiding since May 2011

Always good to have a tour with you Martin. Very educational. Been googling lots more abt the wall that was in my lifetime. Sorry I couldn't leave a tip this time due to technical issues with my laptop, but I'll double up net time.

Thank You Martin for a very interesting and moving account of the construction and GDR motivations behind the building of The Wall. And the tragic Human impact this had on all Berliners .We will definitely come and see for ourselves one day.
