30 years since the fall of the Wall

The German Democratic Republic opened its borders to West Germany on 9 November 1989. Less than eleven months later, the peaceful revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall brought about German reunification on 3 October 1990. These historic events not only allowed East Germans to travel the world, but millions of international tourists could now also experience and explore the natural beauty and the culture of the former GDR. Discover the diversity of tourism offerings in the reunified Germany, from captivating natural landscapes and buzzing cities to historical gems, from inspiring contemporary culture to thriving traditions.
