After the Second World War, this was no man’s land, where the Berlin Wall divided the city.

After the Gendarmenmarkt it’s on to Alexanderplatz and the TV Tower. The stop for these sights is the Neptune Fountain. This used to be the Berlin City Palace. Here you will also have the opportunity to go shopping. The next stop is Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, in front of the Radisson Hotel. From here you can transfer on to a boat if you wish to experience Berlin by boat as well as bus. From here you can also admire the golden dome of the New Synagogue on Oranienburger Straße. The “Hackeschen Höfe” are only a few minutes away.

The best way to explore Berlin is in a Bike. Perfect if you are alone or with company. The guide was kind and knowledgeable. I had trouble finding the spot were the bikes are so be there a little early so you have time to find the exact spot and prepare for your tour calmly.

The bus drove well and safely through the city. The guide presented everything well and seemed motivated - it was fun to listen to him. The tour was very interesting and a complete 2-hour round trip was perfect. I'd be happy to do it again 😊

Our guide Franca, was so knowledgeable…. It was a pleasure to listen to her history version of events, her general knowledge of Berlin, was amazing!!❤️❤️

Our guide, JOACHIM, was excellent. Very knowledgeable, full of informations and a very kind person.
