Germany 1870-1990

Tour Introduction

Otto von Bismarck’s proclamation in Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors in January 1871 heralded the birth of a new nation, Germany. In the 150 years which followed, this nation and, in particular its capital city, would experience almost continual change. These transitions from Empire to Republic, Fascist Dictatorship to Soviet Occupation, Partition to Reunification, would all leave their scars on the city of Berlin and on its people.

Anglia offers fully-guided school history trips to Berlin which will provide your group with the perfect opportunity to trace the history of Germany from its origins to reunification. Why not start with the Siegesaϋle and the Brandenburg Gate to look at the last vestiges of Prussia then take a tour of the Reichstag building, once again the seat of German Government; visit the excellent exhibition in the German-Russian Museum in Karlshorst, site of Germany’s unconditional surrender in 1945; walk down Bernauer Strasse and explore the various memorials along the former course of the Berlin Wall. There is so much to see and do.
