Whilst not the highest, the widest nor the longest, the Berlin Wall is probably the most famous of them all. And no trip to Berlin would be complete without visiting it and the other significant sites associated with it.

The period following World War II left Germany divided and eventually lead to the forming of East and West Germany. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Berlin.

We will cover the fascinating period between the Second World War and the construction of the Berlin Wall when the uncomfortable alliance between the Soviets and Western Allies finally shattered, heralding the beginning of the Cold War.

  • what led to the construction of the wall?
  • what led to its fall?
  • what life was like on both sides of the Berlin Wall?

We also look at the many varied and ingenious ways people escaped and visit a number of the specific escape spots.
