The tour on 12 February 2019 covered important historical sites such as Nordbahnhof that houses numerous paintings from the period before German reunification. From Nordbahnhof, the group walked along Bernauer Strasse that illustrates the impact of the Berlin Wall on Berlin and the people. It documents the construction that once divided the country, the attempts to escape the dictatorship, the acts of resistance, the procedure and safety measure around the Berlin Wall. Artists from many countries painted graffities and contemporary interpretations on the wall sections.
