Learn about Berlin’s Divided History

For almost 30 years, Berlin was a divided walled in city, a unique situation in the German history. We start at Brandenburg gate – an absolute symbol of division and unification – with the so-called “ghost train” to the “palace of tears” a famous checkpoint in the past.

We continue to one of the “ghost stations”- Nodbahnhof – along the original wall in “Bernauerstrasse”, known for the spectacular escapes out of the windows and through escape tunnels. We go over the border control line – the deathstripe – to the chapel of reconciliation, where we take part in a short service to listen the story of one of 138 victims of the wall.

The end is in the documentation center with a lot of photo, film and press material.
