This will allow us to look at one of the most remarkable monuments of the city, the highest in Germany, the famous television tower, now a true symbol of Berlin. You will then walk along the Karl-Marx-Allee, which has changed names several times over the course of history. It is the site of the biggest reconstruction project in Berlin after World War II. The ambitions of the socialist system through the Soviet architecture that some call Stalinist will no longer be secret to you. You will continue along the longest still standing part of the Berlin wall, which is located on the banks of the River Spree.
