Borders and Migration

Checkpoint Charlie 2008
Checkpoint Charlie 2008

Berlin is a city with a divided past, where checkpoints and dangerous borders were once defining features of the now open and vibrant metropolis. This tour, led by a Syrian refugee, shows how borders, both visible and invisible have affected their lives, and how Berlin, once a city where people fled from, has become a place of refuge for many in their situation.

This tour lasts for one hour and is conducted via Zoom.

Highlights include:

  • Checkpoint Charlie
  • Friedrichstrasse
  • Gendarmenmarkt
