You may not have known it, but today marks an interesting moment in German history. As of February 5th 2018, Germany has lived without the Berlin Wall for just as many days as it stood with it. Dividing East and West Germany from 1961, it has now been 10,316 days since the official date of its fall on November 9th  1989, the same amount of time that it stood.

For its turbulent past, Berlin is all the more resilient today and has a wealth of history and culture to immerse students in.

 

 Did you know? Only the West side of the Berlin wall was covered in Graffiti.

 

There is a selection of brilliant excursions we can offer school groups to complement all Key Stage History curriculums, these include:

The East Side Gallery, famous as the longest "open-air gallery" in the world, is a monument to peace and unity. The gallery consists of 101 large artworks painted on a remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall.

 

Checkpoint Charlie was the nickname given to the best-known crossing point of the Berlin Wall ("Charlie" is from the phonetic alphabet). Today, it lends its name to the Mauermuseum - Haus am Checkpoint Charlie, a museum showcasing its history, including fascinating stories of successful escape plans!

 

The Story of Berlin is an interactive museum which gives a deep insight into 800 years of the German capital's history, from the 13th century to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification that followed in the 1990s.
