Peek inside a Stasi prison cell, visit a museum with Communist vehicles, and watch an S-IL 135 demo!
This tour will give guests a deeper insight into the years of separation that have shaped Germany. Learn more about the reunification and the differences between the German Democratic Republic and the Federal Republic of Germany.
Start your day with a short drive into downtown Rostock, where you'll pass by several concrete block buildings from the 1960s and be introduced to the typical architecture of the former German Democratic Republic. Once we get to Rostock, you'll be guided through the famous Stasi prison and even peek inside a real prison cell! The Stasi was the former East German Secret Service run by the Communists. The Stasi actually took over the East Berlin prison that was run by the Nazi government during World War II.
We'll then continue onto the Technical Museum in Putnitz, a small town in eastern Germany near Rostock. See their impressive exhibit filled with authentic Communist vehicles on display in three different hangars. Your guide will show you old “Tschaikas” (limousines of the former Russian government) and “Trabis” (popular car during the times of the GDR; see photo).
You will then watch a unique demonstration of an S-IL 135, which is an incredible mobile missle launching vehicle!
