Probably many of you have already been to the capital of Germany. That’s why we have organized an excursion, which will lead you to spots of Berlin that are not on the typical touristic tracks. On our schedule for these days is of course a visit of the German Bundestag (parliament). We will also have a guided walk through “Neukölln”, the cultural melting pot of Berlin. Besides we will do a guided tour on top of “Teufelsberg”, literally “Devil’s Mountian”, an abandoned spy station that was used by the Americans during the Cold War. As another highlight we get in touch with the history of Berlin as a divided city during the Cold War. To uncover more about this era and how it has shaped and still shapes Berlin today, we will offer two options to choose from: either a cycle tour along the Berlin Wall or a guided tour through the museum of the German Democratic Republic, including a discussion with a contemporary witness.
Please register via: email@example.com until 1 September 2014. When registering for our trip to Berlin, please tell us, whether you would like to take part in the cycle or visit the GDR-museum and give us your date of birth.
