What you can expect

During this private tour you will learn about the history of the Berlin Wall and of the East Side Gallery murals. You will also learn about the stories of some of the victims that died on that stretch. We will also discuss the history of graffiti on the Wall and what is the true meaning of this memorial site.

The East Side Gallery is the most visited remaining stretch of the Wall, but there is almost no interpretation at the site. After this tour, you will be able to understand how the East Gallery came to be and where it is heading to.

Let me know if you have any special requests and I can create a personalized tour for you.
