This fall will mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, making it a great time to visit the historic city. Kensington Tours’ new Fall Of The Berlin Wall 25th Anniversary itinerary focuses on this symbolic boundary, its impact on Germany and celebrates the November 1989 collapse of the borders between East and West Berlin. In addition, visitors will learn about Berlin’s history from Prussian kings, the Third Reich, the depths of its division during the Cold War and its reemergence in the aftermath.
Tours will be led by private guides, all native Germans with strong ties to the era that can give in-depth perspectives on what life was like for those who lived during the time of the wall.
Highlights on the tour include Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, The Reichstag, Berliner Dom, Hitler’s bunker, a Jewish synagogue, and the Berlin War Memorial. The week will also include stops at special exhibits such as a light installation stretching 12 kilometers, which runs along the wall, and murals that constitute the biggest open-air gallery in the world, painted by 118 artists from 21 different countries. The open-air gallery takes place along the Oberbaumbruecke, turning the bridge into an “art mile” for hundreds of different mediums.
Bonus: After tours of Berlin, travelers will visit the palace of King Henri I in Potsdam.
