From 1949 to 1960, the oval street enclosed by a board fence, colloquially known as the "little town", was the exclusive residential area for top GDR politicians.

The guided tour through Mayakovskiring introduces the most important villas and explains the political significance of the SED political celebrities who once lived there.
