Itinerary

We start our vibrant Berlin tour in the very heart of Berlin's new government quarter. Meet your local guide in front of the Reichstag at the Big German Flag in front of the main entrance and hear the amazing story of this world-renowned building. You will 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.

Of course times have changed greatly in Germany, and Berlin is no exception. While strolling the streets of this city, we take you on a journey as we explore the political changes that have occurred over the decades, and gain some further insight into modern Berlin culture. Our guides have their own pictures, original documents, as well as old and new maps, which make this Berlin walking tour experience all the more memorable, and makes our stunning city’s past come alive!

On our ultimate Berlin travel experience, you learn more about the countless historical events, modern places and landmarks that have made Berlin what it is today. Brandenburg Gate and the beautiful Pariser Platz are a couple of the famous places we take in on our adventure. We walk through the Memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe, a strong emotional expression of Germany dealing with the holocaust and the troubled aspects of its past. Learn more about one of history’s most notorious tyrants, Adolf Hitler, when we localise the almost forgotten site of his bunker, where he hid out during the final battle of World War II. Step back in time as we pass by former Nazi Ministries, the "Topography of Terror", and Checkpoint Charlie. Hear stories of Cold War, GDR fugitives and day-to-day life in divided Germany, including a stop at "The Wall". We visit the site, where young Peter Fechter was murdered by border guards in 1962, continuing to what is widely regarded as the most beautiful place of Berlin: Gendarmenmarkt.

Next we take in some of Berlin’s Grand Boulevards, including Friedrichstraße and Unter den Linden, the historic location where the infamous book burning of 1933 took place. It is then off to Berlins Humboldt University, the most famous in our city. Our Berlin sightseeing tour finishes up in a part of the city that is a fantastic historical and cultural melting pot. With world famous museums, beautiful old churches, and hidden gems to uncover. On Saturdays there is even a quirky flea market – good fun and typical for Berlin!

On our walk we pass one of Berlin’s oldest chocolate makers, where Berlin's most iconic buildings are rebuild in chocolate. It's a sight to behold - and of course to savor a delicious treat! Be sure to discover, enjoy and discuss Berlin with us on this unique Berlin tour adventure!
