Cold War Berlin

Tour Introduction

Nowhere on Earth experienced the Cold War in such a dramatic fashion as Berlin: occupied by bitterly opposed rivals, divided by ideological and physical barriers, the people of Berlin suffered for nearly half a century. Today, one of Europe’s most dynamic and exciting cities still bears many scars of this extraordinary period.

Anglia’s in-depth knowledge of Berlin and the many sites it has to offer enables us to design tailor-made itineraries for our groups. So you can be sure your school trip to Berlin will support whatever course your students are following. From Potsdam, where the map of Europe was redrawn, and the iconic site of Checkpoint Charlie, where Soviet and American tanks faced each other down in October 1961 to one of the remaining stretches of the Wall which divided the city for twenty-eight years your students will experience a city where the Cold War was at its hottest.
