Berlin - Beyond the Wall
Berlin has been the nexus for many pivotal moments in modern European history as its urban fabric bears witness. Join Nick Jackson, an archaeologist who lives in Berlin, who will reveal to you a Berlin only residents know. He will uncover the fascinating narrative of the region’s past and present: from its Royal Prussian palaces, to its place in Nazi fantasies, and its role as a hub of both socialist cultures and radical countercultures. You will explore a plethora of gems, including the Ishtar Gate housed in the Pergamon Museum and world-changing treaties, to secret escape tunnels and the vibrant city of today. We will introduce you to this multi-faceted culture while allowing you time on your own to experience one of Europe’s most dynamic cities.
