Visit the death strip, sites of escapes, a park that reclaims the wall's dark history and hip stores and cafes This tour begins at a Berlin Wall memorial that features remaining parts of the dividing barrier and potent reminders of those who died trying to cross it. The tour ends in East Berlin's hip Prenzlauerberg neighborhood, home to many dissidents during the German Democratic Republic, and currently a great area for grabbing a snack or doing a spot of shopping. Along the way, you will experience sobering views of the death strip, a grassy no-man's land that separated the inner wall on the east side from the larger outer wall on the west side. You also will see where people jumped to safety as the wall was being built as well as landmark houses where underground tunnels provided an exit route for dozens of dissidents before being discovered by Stasi (East Germany's secret police) spies. The contrast between then and now is most stark in Mauer Park, an afternoon meeting place in the middle of the death strip for musicians, boule players, young mothers and graffiti artists.
