TOUR: Eyewitness History – Walking Tour with local Author Daniel Burghard
12. May 2022 @ 11:00 - 13:30
To say that this city has seen a lot of history over the last couple of centuries is an understatement. Come along with local author Daniel Burghard on an amazing walking tour as he guides you to some of the most significant and iconic WWII and Cold War locations in Berlin.
Starting at the iconic Brandenburg Gate and finishing up at the famous Checkpoint Charlie, at each stop in this roughly 2 hour tour, Daniel will explain the history of the location, as well as read to you eyewitness accounts from his latest book, “The Things They’ve Seen”, covering accounts of life both in WWII and Cold War Germany. In addition, Circus guests who take the tour will receive a complimentary copy of his book to take home, read and learn even more about the eyewitness accounts of history. At the end of the tour, if energy levels are still high, Daniel will point you in the direction of a couple of other WWII/Cold War locations which can be explored independently.
Thursday 12th May
Meeting Point: Reception 11:00 am
Cost: Free and Exclusive for Circus guests (AB Public Transport Ticket Required)
