Private Shore Excursion: Cold War and East Berlin from Warnemünde

Private Shore Excursion: Cold War and East Berlin from Warnemünde

The Berlin Wall, Kruschev & Kennedy, the Airlift, spies, escapes and “the end of history” – it’s fair to say that Berlin defined the Cold War. This tour is a deep dive into a divided city – a time when it felt like World War Three was just around the corner, when one side of the city lived under Soviet-style communism, and the other was occupied by not one, not two, but three Western powers!

In air-conditioned comfort, in your luxury German car, you'll be taken from West to East across the German capital, criss-crossing where the Berlin Wall once stood, to get the closest possible look at what life was like back when Berlin was the centre of the Cold War. From famous sights like the Brandenburg Gate and Checkpoint Charlie, to lesser-known memorials and stories that you would never find on your own, this tour is far and away the best way to get to know Cold War Berlin.
