Berlin Walking Tour: The Cold War - Soviet Secrets & CIA Spies Instant Confirmation
This tour follows the often ghost like trail of the Death-strip and Wall, retracing some of the more intriguing fortifications of its border from Guard Towers to tank traps.

For a proper historical perspective you'll see at the plight of former east Germans in present society: from former Stasi agents and every day citizenry through to the remarkable scenario of Germany's, not only first female, but 'ossie' (the nick-name for east Germany's) Chancellor - what do they miss about the GDR, are things better? From shopping to daily work, before, after and what the future holds.
