What to expect

Have you just arrived in Berlin and don't know where to start? This tour is the perfect solution: your guide will introduce you to the best things the most popular European capital of the moment has to offer. With this exciting and eventful journey, you will cover almost 800 years of Berlin history by strolling through the most important sites in the city's historical landscape, from its genesis to the Prussian era, the Nazi period, the Cold War and the reunification, up to its present role.

You will see the Museum Island, with the cathedral and the Lustgarten, and visit Unter den Linden and Bebelplatz, where you will admire the Forum Fridericianum with the former Royal Library, Humboldt University and the State Opera. You will discover the Memorial to the Book Burning which took place in May 1933. The next stop will be at Gendarmenmarkt, the most elegant square in Berlin, and quickly relive the 'golden twenties' on Friedrichstrasse before heading to the Cold War place par excellence - Checkpoint Charlie. You will continue to see a part of the original Wall and the remains of the former Nazi government district, where Hitler's Chancellery and Bunker, the SS and Gestapo headquarters, and the Ministry of Nazi Aviation were located. Then your guide will bring you to the Holocaust Memorial and Pariser Platz, where you conclude the tour in front of the city's most iconic location, between the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag.
