This private walking tour is a condensed version of our ‘Best of Berlin’ tour. It is perfect for those who are short on time but still want to make the most of the city. Let one of our professional, local guides give you a crash course in Berlin’s history, and the inside track on one of the most exciting cities the planet, in just 3-hours. Predominantly focusing on Berlin’s historical city centre, Mitte, thematically the tour covers Prussia, Imperial Germany, Nazism, and the Cold War – painting the bigger picture to help you understand how different periods of Berlin’s past fit together, and how they affect the city today. See the Reichstag, burned down after Hitler’s rise to power and now a bold symbol of modern German democracy and pass through the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s most iconic landmark. Walk in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, and cross the border at Checkpoint Charlie, the frontier of the Cold War. Then journey through the iconic concrete stellae of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and learn about the tragedy of the holocaust. You will stand at the centre of the Museum Island, the 19th century city’s architectural heart, and a UNESCO world heritage site. Time will also be taken to explore the old Nazi government quarter to see some remaining examples of Nazi architecture, the former SS and Gestapo Headquarters, and the site of Hitler’s Bunker. You will also experience the pomp and grandeur of Prussian Berlin in Gendarmenmarkt and Bebelplatz, two of Berlin’s most beautiful squares, and much, much more... At the end of the tour your guide will accompany you back to your hotel, or to a drop-off point of your choosing. They will also give you tips and recommendations to help you make the most out of your stay.
