Hello! I am Estefanía, an entrepreneur and educator with a great passion for tourism and history. I have been living in Berlin since 2013, where I moved to learn about the city's entrepreneurial and innovative ecosystem, and fell in love with its history, creativity and diversity. I am a lover of cinema, music and gastronomy, something that I will also talk about in my tours with interesting recommendations. If you want I'll tell you a little more about all this while walking!

Tour description

Where were you on November 9, 1989? Do you have any personal memories of that day? If you don't have it, you will have studied the history of the wall and the cold war or you will have seen it, at least in a few movies.
But... do you really understand the wall, why and what it represented for the whole world? What happened to the wall and what happened after the "unification" of Germany?
In this tour I tell you all the history of the wall and how people lived it in this city. Of course I will talk about getaways and other curiosities.
We'll meet at Checkpoint Charlie for a two and a half hour tour.
The points to visit are:

  • Checkpoint Charlie
  • potsdamer platz
  • brandenburg gate
  • The Berlin Wall at Bernauer Straße

(the last journey will be 3 train stops, so you must have a BVG ticket)
**If you like movies and music, this tour is for you, because I will make several references to movies and songs related to the sites we will visit

***EXTRA!!! At the end of the tour you will receive an email with recommendations of places to visit, when they are free and the best restaurants and food markets


- The tour is ONLY carried out with a minimum of 6 people . In case the minimum is not reached, it will be canceled 12 hours before the start.
- A metro ticket is needed for 1 trip
- Bring comfortable shoes and come prepared to be surprised!

Estefani was a great guru! She knows a lot of the city and a lot about culture too, which made the tour even more interesting and instructive. And after the walk, she gave us many othe tips and suggested movies and musics to understand more about Berlin! I highly recommend this tour!
