Let a local show you the the main historical spots of the city, while sharing with you stories from Berlin’s harsh history. Get to know real stories about how East and West were divided but also how life used to go on in those days.

Your private journey will take you to places with interesting backgrounds like the famous Tunnel 29, now a regular subway stop, where you’ll listen to the story of the 29 Berliners who escaped to West Berlin in 1962. Bike past the places that East Berliners tried to use to escape. You’ll get to the Nordbahnhof, known as the Ghost Station, to the once terrifying Kieler Eck command tower and the unique family home right at the past border of West and East Berlin.
