Berlin is one of the most attractive cities in Germany to tourists. It has a great mix of arts and culture, cuisine and also a rich history to go with it. You can’t talk about the history of Berlin without taking note of the great wall of Berlin (or what’s left of it).  

It was a great wall built across the center of Berlin that essentially divided Berlin physically and also based on political ideology. The wall has since fallen but it remains probably the most popular symbol of the cold war and an important part of the history of Berliners which they are more than happy to share.

The great Berlin wall

Tours along the remnants of the wall are very common, and one of the best tour service providers is Be Original Tours. They have a network of local tour guides who have a vast knowledge of Berlin’s culture and history. Through their free walking tour service, tourists are connected with enthusiastic, English-speaking locals who are fun and creative in their duties as tour guides.

Walking along the wall, the tourists will learn from the guides about the events surrounding the wall –why it rose and why it fell, and the difference in life on both sides. They also will see the old underground ‘ghost’ station of the Cold War, the Death Strip of the Wall, and the old guard tower.
