Everyday life in the former GDR was flanked by repressive structures of state power on the one hand and by opposition movements on the other hand, which courageously brought their opposition and thus brought about the peaceful revolution of 1989. In the Berlin districts of Lichtenberg, Mitte, Pankow, these two so different subject areas can be traced well, in some places museum-processed, hidden somewhere less obvious in today's cityscape. Numerous church buildings also had a special significance for the social upheaval as open spaces.The "Contrasts" bike tour stops at an interesting selection of these important places! At a distance of more than 20 km, it connects a total of nine places of German contemporary history in the former eastern part of Berlin, and exciting sightseeing destinations can also be found in the vicinity of the route.The route is well connected with public transport. Start and end points are located at easily accessible S-Bahn stations.
