Just in time for the German Unity Day – 3rd of October 2018 – in Berlin, my new GDR Berlin Map in cooperation with the DDR Museum will be released.
Until the 2nd of October you can win a KiezWalk with me through the GDR (German Democratic Republic) in Berlin. All you have to do is to get a GDR Berlin map or any other map until the 2nd of October and you will automatically enter the raffle ;). The winner will be announced on the 2nd at 12:00.
It´s always been fascinating to me that I grew up in a country which doesn`t exist any more. This map gives you an insight into lives that are fast fading from memory. Believing that the DDR Museum more than anywhere else captures everyday life in the GDR (German Democratic Republic), I am so excited to be partnering with them.
The GDR museum is dedicated to everything about East Germany. In the museum you can visit an authentic GDR apartment and get a feeling of everyday life in the former Soviet satellite state. It even displays an exact copy of the couch I grew up on!
With this map dedicated to the GDR, we would like to take you on a walk through the past. The GRD map is a locally-curated collection of spots crafted so you can explore East Berlin with ease through a series of suggested city walks. The guide map includes GDR sights and attractions not to be missed to make the most of your experience.
Take a seat in the Trabi ride, climb up the ladder of the GDR Watchtower and experience the same view as the East German border soldiers or simply enjoy a currywurst at Konnopke. Let us take you on a journey and explore all aspects of daily life behind the Berlin Wall!
Publishing date: 3rd of October 2018, German Unity Day
