What to expect

Follow the visible and hidden remains of the Berlin Wall by bike, from the Bornholmer Straße up to the Government District, and learn more about everyday life in East-Germany during the Cold War and Stasi time.

Far more than just a wall, the Berlin Wall was a symbol for misery and the struggle between two systems. For almost 30 years, this 160-kilmeter-long so-called “death strip” cut through Berlin and the lives of its inhabitants. The stories around it are many: from the funny, to the tragic, to the unbelievably absurd.

Get to know the political dimensions, the background circumstances and, above all, the human element in the everyday struggle of life in a divided city, right where it happened. During the bike tour you will see the Mauerpark, where a part of the former “death strip” has been transformed into a vibrant part of the new Berlin, and the official Berlin Wall Memorial on Bernauer Straße with a guard tower and the last remaining, totally intact portion of the Berlin Wall.
