    What to Expect
    This 60 minute talk with a local English speaking eyewitness takes place in the seminar room of the DDR Museum. This tour price does not include the entrance to the DDR Museum. If you wish to visit the museum, tickets must be purchased separately.

    The Cold War (1945–1991) was a continuing state of political and military tension between the powers of the Western world, led by the United States and its NATO allies, and the communist world, led by the Soviet Union, its satellite states and allies. If you have special interests or topics you would like to ask about, please note at the time of booking.

    To begin this tour, you will meet at the ticket office near the entrance of the DDR Museum, located on the bank of the river Spree directly opposite the Berlin Cathedral.
