    On May 1, 1945, soldiers of the Red Army hoisted a red flag on the Berlin Reichstag; on May 2, the capital of Nazi Germany capitulated. From then on, Soviet soldiers and civilians were part of Berlin for a good 50 years. First they represented one of four military occupying powers, then later the so-called "protective power" for the German Democratic Republic founded in October 1949. Many of the German Communists who built this first socialist state on German soil had spent the Nazi persecution in Soviet exile. Now they designed the GDR society on the model of the "big brother" of the Soviet Union and were actively supported by the occupying power. For the GDR population, the relationship to the official “brother state” was always tense. Personal contacts were not desired by the governments of both states, the Soviet soldiers, but also the government employees and their families were isolated from the GDR population. After June 17, 1953 at the latest, when Soviet troops put down the popular uprising, many GDR citizens held the occupying power responsible for the repression of their government. In 1989 the relief was all the greater that the Gorbachev government did not use military force to stop the mass protests, but opened the way for the peaceful revolution and German reunification.The “Exciting Brotherhood” cycle tour connects seven places of Soviet history in Berlin and gives tips for further sightseeing destinations along the route.The approximately 24 km long bike tour is easily accessible by public transport. The S-Bahn stations Schönholz and Karlshorst are at the start and end point.
