Description

The most comprehensive 4-hour Berlin tour available, encompassing the city's unique history, with our guides remaining flexible for you on tour days. Learn about Frederick the Great and the Hohenzollern Dynasty, the formation of the German nation under Bismarck in 1871, Berlin and the effects of World War 1. Hear about the chaos of the Weimar Republic, the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party, World War II, the Berlin Wall, and Berlin’s current role as the capital of a reunified Germany. You will be met by your guide at your accommodation or chosen meeting point before visiting: Museum Island – The historical centre with six world-class museums, as well as the Berlin Cathedral and the newly rebuilt Hohenzollern city palace. Unter den Linden – Under the Linden Trees. The royal boulevard of Berlin connects the Brandenburg Gate to Museums Island and the City Palace. Bebelplatz – First known as Frederick’s Forum, after Prussia's Frederick the Great, it is now home to the Humboldt University, the Opera House, the Royal Library, and Hedwig’s Cathedral. It was also infamously the site of the Nazi book burnings on May 10, 1933. Gendarmenmarkt – Considered by most to be the most beautiful square in Berlin. Home to the French and German Cathedrals and the impressive Konzerthaus. Checkpoint Charlie – The famous frontline and Allied Checkpoint manned by the Americans and Soviets during the Cold War. The Berlin Wall – One of three remaining stretches of the Berlin Wall, situated on the site of the former SS and Gestapo headquarters of Nazi Germany, were situated directly across from the monolith former Nazi Luftwaffe headquarters. Potsdamer Platz – One of the busiest traffic intersections in Europe in the 1920s, with more than 20,000 cars crossing each day, destroyed almost completely during WWII and rebuilt as Berlin’s most modern district during the 1990s and early 2000s. Site of Hitler’s Bunker – The air raid shelter that became the centre of the Nazi regime until the last week of World War II in Europe and where Hitler took his own life. Here we discuss the last days of the Nazi regime and of Adolf Hitler. The Reichstag – the German House of Parliament, and infamous due to the fire that enabled Hitler to take total control. It was fought over during the Battle of Berlin between the Germans and the Soviets and is now topped with a glass copula designed by British architect Sir Norman Foster. Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe – This complex, thought-provoking site is the central Germany memorial to the 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis in concentration and death camps around Europe. The Brandenburg Gate – One of the most iconic sights in today's vibrant Berlin and the former royal entrance to Berlin of the Prussian royal family. It survived Napoleon, and WWII and then was trapped in the middle of the Berlin Wall for almost 30 years. This former symbol of division is now an important symbol of German unity.
