Visit to the German-Russian Museum in Karlshorst (East Berlin)
A visit to the German-Russian Museum in the Karlshorst district takes you to an important historic site; the exact rooms, preserved for posterity, where, on May 9th 1945, high ranking officials of the Third Reich signed their unconditional surrender to the Red Army. The tour of the museum explores the Second World War and its consequences from the perspective of Russia and Germany. Entrance ticket is included.
Treptow Park - Soviet Memorial Treptow (East Berlin)
80,000 Soviet soldiers died in the fighting to capture Berlin. The Soviet War Memorial in Treptow commemorates them. The centerpiece is the mausoleum on a hill, topped by the huge statue of a Soviet soldier, carrying a child in one arm and resting his sword on a shattered swastika. To this day, visitors and politicians lay wreaths every year in honor of the fallen soldiers and the liberation of Berlin by the Red Army.
Karl Marx Allee (Formerly Stalin Allee, East Berlin)
The Cold War had Berlin in its grip, dividing the city into east and west. The Socialist Unity Party of Germany (SED) wanted to prove something: that the GDR had more to offer the working class than the capitalist West – not just simple apartments, but real palaces! Towers, columns and palaces: from Frankfurter Tor to Strausberger Platz, Karl-Marx-Allee looks like a magnificent Russian boulevard – we explore the boulevard inspired by the socialist realism and socialist classicism of the Soviet Union.
