Have a look at the place where Berlin, Germany, as well as the world was once devided. Get to know the history of the infamous “Berliner Mauer”; the construction, the improvements almost to perfection and also its downfall….

We’ll start at “Bernauer Straße” where in 1961 the residents jumped out of their windows before being evicted. See the sights where courageous students and their helpers were digging tunnels in order to be reunited with their families and friends on the other side of the wall. Listen to the stories of successful escape attempts, but also to the stories of those victims, who through death or capture were unable to fulfill their dreams of living a better life.

30 years have passed since the happiest day in German history. It was the 9th of November 1989 when the whole world witnessed the first little stone falling from the Berlin Wall. What was happening since then? Do “Wessis” (West Germans) and “Ossis” (East Germans) live in their reunified country happily ever after? How do we commemorate this momentous turning point in our history? Together we will find the answer to the first question almost every tourist who comes to Berlin has: “Where was the wall? I can’t find it!?”

The symbol of division wasn’t something we wanted to keep around to look at, but remnants still remain and a project was completed to make the former wall visible again without separating anyone! Are you curious? Come walk with me and discover Berlin!

    Atto was a fantastic story teller. I could really picture myself in East Berlin during the time when the Berlin Wall divided its people. Each step of the way I was given the history, the politics, the reasons for the wall and the divide, but not as a lecture. Instead I felt like I was an East Berliner experiencing the changes to my life over approximately 30 years. It was so informative and entertaining. I want to do it again!

    We were a little unsure about this whole idea: a virtual tour in Berlin from our home in Missouri, USA? Absolutely! The history of the Berlin Wall came alive with Atto, an engaging storyteller who brought us to where the wall stood and shared the stories about the people who tried to escape from East to West Berlin. This section of Berlin is perfect for a virtual tour with the gigantic photos posted on the walls of nearby buildings to the memorials dedicated to those unsuccessful. Atto is great; we highly recommend him!

Atto

Hallo,
my name is Atto and I was born in Münster, Westphalia in former West Germany. Nowadays I live in former East-Berlin very close to where the wall once divided the city. After working in multiple professions - from gardening to theatre and television - I started working as a tour guide throughout Europe over 15 years ago. I have a keen interest for 20th century history and its consequences for society. Many of the major events of this period happened in or had a connection to Berlin, and that's why there is no better place than Berlin in order to dive into that topic.

How does it work?

Live Tours are carried out by our hosts, who are outdoors, on location and connected live to you via video call at all times.

Live on Location

Live Tours aren’t virtual, they are live! Meaning we don’t use Google Streetview, nor will we show you a Powerpoint presentation.

Our hosts will walk around with you whilst being connected live via video call at all times. If we offer a Live Tour in Lima, it really means your host will actually walk through the streets of Lima with you!

Personal, Private and Exclusive

Even more personal than a regular phone call, your host will be connected to you via video call - and they will be connected only to you!

Live Tours aren't conference rooms full of strangers. Your host will be there exclusively for you, so you can ask them questions at any time, ask them to look at some details or even to quickly turn into a street off route - just for you!

Not only will you be able to travel the world, you will also get to know a local professional who is going to be thrilled to show you around and share their knowledge and experience with you :)

Invite your Friends along for free

Your host will only be connected to you, but you can invite up to 5 friends to enjoy the experience together - as long as you are all in front of one device, your device: your phone, tablet, laptop, or computer.

If your friends can't be with you, add a Group Ticket to your booking for an additional 5 devices!

Free cancellation up to 48 hrs

If you cannot reschedule, you can cancel your booking up to 48 hrs for a full refund.

Stabilised Camera

Some of our hosts use a gimbal to stabilise their phones for a super smooth experience! Look out for this feature in the listings.

What about timezones?

If you're in a different time-zone to your host, the website will show the selected time-slot in your local time in blue.

But not to worry, your host will double check the booked time with you and you can adjust timings if necessary!

How do I pay for my booking?

We accept all major Credit Cards, Apple Pay, Google Pay and PayPal. WalkWithMe Tours will act on behalf of the host, so once you've made the payment, you don't have a payment obligation to the host anymore.
