Guided Walking Tours along the LICHTGRENZE


The museum service Berlin offers special guided tours in German and English to the popular sites Mauerpark, Checkpoint Charlie and East Side Gallery/Oberbaumbrücke.

After dusk the view from the observation points will be particularly
worthwhile. The one-hour walks start on the hour and are also suitable for children.
