What you'll do
This vibrant Berlin tour starts in the very heart of Berlin's new government quarter, where you'll hear the amazing story of the world-renowned Reichstag and get up close and personal to some of the original sites of the apocalyptic Battle of Berlin in 1945, which put an end to the horrors of Nazi Germany. You will learn more about the historical events, modern places and landmarks that have made Berlin what it is today. We explore the Brandenburg Gate and the beautiful Pariser Platz before walking through the Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe, the former Nazi Ministries, the ‘Topography of Terror’, and 'The Wall' at Checkpoint Charlie. You will hear stories of the Cold War, GDR fugitives and day-to-day life in divided Germany. Next we’ll take a stroll along one of the city’s most well-known grand boulevards, Friedrichstraße and the tour will end at what is widely regarded as the most beautiful square in Berlin: Gendarmenmarkt, site of three impressive buildings: The German and the French Cathedral and Schinkel's Konzerthaus (concert hall), which brings us back to the Prussian times. Here we will relax with a delicious German snack lunch and a refreshing beer. Please keep in mind that our tour goes deeply into the German history and leaves you with a lot of very interesting and knowledgeable insight about our past!
