- Treat in the heart of East Berlin
With Samovar, bread & salt
After this exciting date with history you deserve a snack. The former Stalinallee the pomp and parade avenue in the GDR - was also a popular meeting point of the East-Berliners. One of the best known addresses was the legendary cafe Moscow and the mocha-milk-ice cream-bar. Here we will invite you to a typical Russian snack, including hot tea from a samovar and, according to Russian tradition, bread and salt as a welcome. During the snack our guide may entertain you with stories and fates of past times.
- The East Side Gallery - first hand history
More crooked, colourful, wild
The next stop of the Wall Ride is the East Side Gallery - the largest and best known piece of the Berlin Wall. Our uniformed personnel is ready to take your group picture in front of the legendary kiss of brothers painting. And you may have time to explore the site briefly by yourself. The original piece of the wall alongside the Spree river was painted 1990 by 118 artist from 21 countries and is a significant document of the political changes 1989/1990. The East Side Gallery is with 1316 meters the longest open air gallery in the world.
- Checkpoint Charlie Ihre Papiere bitte!
Nothing goes without a visa
We will continue to the last stop of the Wall Ride. Checkpoint Charlie on Friedrichstrase is the best known of the former border crossings - next to the border between the American and the Sowjet Sector. This legendary border crossing was mainly used by Diplomats. Here was also the focus point of the cold war - two super powers were standing eye to eye and you could cut the tension with a knife. The checks on GDR-side were especially harsh, provoking and sometimes plainly ridiculous. We also have to get checked here - just like in former times - and hopefully - after a thorough inspection - we will get the right stamp for our documents
