"On the trail of GDR Celebrities"
The political leadership of the GDR had its domicile in the districts of Pankow and Wandlitz, Berlin, during their 40-year government up to the Fall of the Wall. Both places are visited as part of this day excursion. The visit to the housings of the SED (former socialist party) leadership 20 years after the Fall of the Wall is a journey into a past, hidden world. Participants gain insight into Germany's most recent history, the division of Germany. The day excursion begins with a tour along the town houses in Pankow. The guided tour offers a glimpse into the lifestyles of prominent figures in the GDR in the 40s nd 50s. The next thing to visit is Schönhausen Castle in Berlin, dating from the 18th century. After the uprising of East German construction workers on June 17, 1953, and the Hungarian Revolution in 1956, the SED party leadership retreated to a separate, specially secured complex in the forest area of "Hintere Heide" near Wandlitz - the "secret forest settlement of Wandlitz". Here, approximately 650 employees served the privileged SED leadership and another 140 people were responsible for the surveillance and shielding of the "special zone". A guided tour around the residential areas offers an impressive overview of the history of the residences of political celebrities in the GDR.
