East Berlin Tour with a Travel Writer
Duration: 3 hours
Time: 2 p.m.
Experience the architecture and history of East Berlin
We start this East Berlin walking tour at the former heart of the GDR, the Weltzeituhr or World Time Clock on Alexanderplatz. We’ll see East Berlin’s showpiece buildings, including the iconic TV tower. As we continue on foot to Karl Marx Allee, the GDR’s Champs-Élysées, I’ll explain the history of the GDR – how it came to be, how it functioned and how it disintegrated with the fall of the Berlin Wall.
For an even more in depth look at Berlin’s architecture my book on The GDR architecture of East Berlin is available on Amazon!
