Berlin Wall road trip: Map

Franz Strasser is travelling and video blogging through his former home of Eastern Germany, 20 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Built by the Communist authorities in 1961, the wall became the most potent symbol of the Cold War and its fall in 1989 signalled the collapse of Soviet power.

Follow Franz's journey in his blog and on the map below by clicking on the icons and watching his reports.
