Description

When starting our tour I will pick you up from your accommodation or hotel. Within the Berlin S-Bahn-Ring for free, pick-up from the airport is also possible, but then you may choose better our Welcome/Farewell Tour. You don't need to wait outside, please wait until I send you a text message. After a brief overview about our tour let us start. Enjoy the ride in a luxurios SUV car, with leather seats, AC and all comfort. You sit on a higher position, especially in the fond for a better sight. Your tour is individual, but I have of course a round trip prepared with the most spectaculous and interesting sites of Berlin. This is important to get the whole story of Berlin, with its progress from the time of the prussian kings and later emperors, and then the deep fall with the nazitime and second world war. Berlin get destroyed up to 80 percent in the center, but a lot was reconstructed in the past. And then the dividing of the city in 4 sectors, forming later East and West Berlin. With a partly differenct, partly similar developpement in both parts. But grounded in two different and completely opponent systems, capitalism and communism. And then the wonder of the reunification after a peaceful revolution in 1989. Since then an increasing city, towards its former border section, a death zone, and implementing there the new parliament and government center. And growing in numbers and attractivities, with its very lively and young culture, from high established opera art to the party scene. And you will get in touch of all of this, not only from your convenient seats, but also on short walks to some main sites or interesting places. The special thing about this “Extended & Relaxed' tour is that we take it easy. We have time for more (photo) stops, but also for a break with café, or a beer. Or we have a real lunch break in a very cosy restaurant in an original old building. Inside looking like an old pub, serving German meals like Schnitzel (but also pizza or salad, if your prefer). It's your choice! Relax and explore German kitchen culture. Or a shorter break with a Berliner Currywurst (Bratwurst in curry sauce). Let's start for example at Potsdamer Platz. This was part of the death stripe between East and West. Why death zone? The ruins after the destroying were erased on both sides, and here the stripe between the front wall and the second, back wall was 80m wide. In the nineties is was developped and reconstructed with modern buildings, the socalled Sony Center and the Mercedes-Benz Quarter. We start from here direction North, passing the former ministrial gardens, towards Brandenburg Gate. Before we will see the 2711 steles of the holocaust memorial of the 6 mio murdered jews in Europe. Also Brandenburg Gate was part of the wall, with no check point. But it was already a gate of the ancient city, so the old city was totally part of East Berlin. I show you first the highlights of the West, and later the historical sites situated in the East.
