Warnemunde Shore Excursion - Enjoy a private Cold War history tour of Berlin. Your guide will be a local expert, most-likely an East-Berlin historian, with many years of experience in guiding and a passion for showing you their hometown.

Your private driver will meet you at the pier and then your guide joins you in Berlin. One of your first stops will be the Berlin Wall Memorial Site which is the only place in Berlin where the Wall can be seen in its original border installations. You will take a closer look at the notorious death strip wall system that cost the lives of many escapees between 1961 and 1989. Get in touch with this massive manifestation of the Iron Curtain and hear the stories of the dramatic building and the turbulent fall of the Wall which divided the Berliners for more than 28 years.

Next you visit the famous Friedrichstrasse train station with the so-called Palace of Tears, one of the most important entrance gates into East Berlin during Cold War. You guide will tell you all about the legendary ghost stations, the risky "smuggling" of goods, books and people and how the Berliners managed their everyday life in a divided city.

You will go deeper into the heart of Berlins historic city center. You'll drive along the Friedrichstrasse until you reach one of the most iconic sites of the Cold War, Checkpoint Charlie.

You will visit Alexanderplatz and the iconic Berlin TV Tower, plus see the nearby Marx Engels Forum, where the statues of the communist philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels still seem to watch over the Berliners.

Next, we continue on to the East Side Gallery, a unique and colorful landmark. Nearby Karl-Marx-Allee is also worth a stop to see the impressive 1950's buildings which were built in the eclectic Soviet "sugar bakery" style.

Of course there will be time to stop for a typical German lunch (meal not included) and to grab a souvenir if you wish.

After seeing these exciting places you will be taken back to the pier in Rostock / Warnemunde.

Mobility: Folding wheelchair OK, some sites may be inaccessible (advance notice required)
