30 years later – The Fall of the Wall

1989 was a pivotal year for German history, even more so for Berliners. In November after 28 years separating kids from grandparents, lovers and friends, after more than 1,000 people being killed at the border, thousands more being incarcerated, abused both physically and psychologically, after decades without free speech or elections, without the freedom to travel, the border regime of the GDR was toppled by brave men and women taking to the streets and soldiers who were just as brave not giving in to the siren song of their guns – and nobody died.

Not even a year later, the whole country was gone – subsumed into the Federal Republic. Over the coming 23 months, we will try to make the whole process a little more understandable by posting regular updates about what happened #otd 30 years earlier.

 
We have made our Mauerfall-Chronik bilingual, produced a number of videos with eyewitness accounts and created new blog posts for the most important events. Minor day-to-day incidents will be shared on Facebook and Twitter under the hashtags #FallOfTheWall and #30YearsLater.

About Us

The inland border with its most visible sign, the Berlin Wall, has long been a focal point of our city bike tours. This year, we are honouring the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Wall with a special program of tours.

Many of our own guides were a part of this history; as witnesses to the opening of the border in 1989 on Bornholmer Strasse, as refugees through the Hungarian border or as “unwanted elements” discarded by the GDR before the collapse of the system.

The painter of the famous “Bruderkuss” on the Eastside Gallery Wall, Dmitry Vrubel, will also accompany us for some events.
