Berlin East vs. West Architecture Wars Tour

The Architecture War that built Berlin as we see it today

Expert-led tour through the heart of the many buildings and areas built during the build-up of east and west Berlin.



Join us on our one of a kind Berlin East vs. West Architecture Wars Tour. Many of the city’s most iconic areas and buildings were built during the cold war. During this time architecture was used in many ways to fight the cold war. From espionage to assumed social status, both sides sought to influence the other with architecture.

We will stroll along the old route where the Berlin wall and river spree used to separate east and west Berlin. With an expert eye and plenty of research our local guides will point out how the build up, stand offs, and espionage structures played a vital role in the cold war.
