Quick Wall Tour
On this exciting tour, experience and learn a lot about the shocking construction of the Berlin Wall in 1961, its gradual expansion, and its seemingly miraculous opening 28 years later. We will ride along the former course of the Wall and see many important parts of the inhumane and deadly no-man’s land that have survived.
We start at the Brandenburg Gate, once marooned between the two sides of the Wall, and now the trademark symbol of the city’s division and subsequent reunification. We then ride along what used to be no-man’s land to Potsdamer Platz, newly re-created after the Fall of the Wall. The Wall used to divide this massive square in two and was left abandoned for decades on both sides. After unification, it became the site for Berlin’s newest and most modern neighbourhood.
From here, we head to one of the only three East German border guard towers to remain standing. These once held soldiers ready to shoot on sight anyone trying to cross without permission from one side of the city to the other.
We then ride along a longer stretch of the Berlin Wall before arriving at Checkpoint Charlie, once a border crossing for diplomats and allied soldiers which became infamous during the tensions of the Cold War.
After we learn a lot of interesting and exciting things about this significant spot, the shorter version of the Wall tour then takes us down one of the most famous streets in Berlin, Friedrichstraße, to the former border crossing at the Friedrichstraße S-Bahn station (known as the "Palace of Tears") and then back to the Brandenburg Gate.
