Join us for a trip to the Allied Museum which is located on the former US military Berlin HQ and is actually housed in the former US Army cinema there. The US presence in Berlin lasted until 1994. The exhibition documents the 50 years of the Allies’ occupation in Berlin throughout the Cold War years, through the collapse of communism and German reunification.
We will see the original guard cabin from the crossing point “Checkpoint Charlie” and a GDR guard tower from the Wall’s perimeter. Also there is one of the worlds famous “Candy Bombers” (The Americans with the Candy Bombers won the hearts of all West Berliners during the 1948/49 siege of Berlin. Probably the biggest propaganda coup of the cold war left the Soviets looking pretty damned stupid).
