One morning The Berlin Wall was dividing the city. It lasted for nearly 30 years, and marked the history of this town, leaving a deep scar, still over 25 years after its fall. This route will guide you through the history of the Wall, you will run into History, passing through places, roads, squares, which we have all seen in pictures. The violence of family separation, the deprivation of liberty, the dramatic escape attempts, some of which have become very symbolic, among the more than 100,000 East Berliners who tried to escape, of which 136 were killed in Berlin itself… An intense route, which meanders from one side to the other side of the wall, as a snub to history. Just running, simply, free… Enjoy…
