What to expect

In less than 5km, you will visit some of the most historically important sites of the 20th century, not just in Europe but in the whole world. See the imposing Reichstag, originally the parliament building constructed after the formation of the 2nd Reich and the scene of the first major step towards dictatorship after Hitler's rise to German Chancellor in 1933.

You will visit not only the easily recognizable landmarks, like the Brandenburg Gate but also what could be described as ‘ghost-sites’ such as the nondescript car-park under which lay the remains of the Führer Bunker. This was where Hitler killed himself with the Soviet forces almost upon him.

See how the German state deals with its complex and dark past as you visit a number of memorials including the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Memorial to the Nazi Book Burning in Babbels Platz.

Pass one of the remaining sections of the Berlin Wall, the very symbol of the Cold War and discuss how, why and when it was constructed, what brought it down, as well as accounts of the brutality of the East German Border Guards and incredible escape stories.

Then head further east where you will start to appreciate the architectural grandeur of what was Prussian and then Imperial Berlin.

If you have never been to Berlin before and you would like to see the best from all of the incredible historical epochs of this city’s history then look no further and choose this tour.

  • Alexanderplatz, Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate
