Full description
See the most interesting modern architecture in Berlin at Potsdamer Platz, the Kulturforum, and Leipziger Platz. Explore the beautiful buildings and learn about their fascinating history with an expert tour guide. Potsdamer Platz, once one of Berlin’s busiest spots, was reduced to a wasteland by the war and the Berlin Wall. Only after German reunification could Potsdamer Platz gain importance again. It became a creative playground for prestigious redevelopment projects, which involved some of the world’s most renowned architects. See the remnants of the Berlin Wall and admire the architecture of the 1960s at the Kulturforum. Marvel at the contemporary buildings at Leipziger Platz and Pariser Platz, and immerse yourself in the history of architecture from Modernism to Bauhaus.

Hidden gems in the middle of the city.

Our guide was very good. She brought a lot of old photo's to show how things were before. Showed us a lot of things we wouldn't have noticed otherwise. It was a good mix of history and architecture. We had trouble finding each other, but she called us so it was solved quickly.

Excellent guide who tailored commentary to our background and interest

We came back to Berlin to see architecture and art. Our guide provided an excellent commentary that included social history associated with past and contemporary trends in architecture. She took care to learn something about our particular interests and tailored the commentary to them. We would readily recommend the tour and our guide to others. With appreciation for an excellent tour. Anne and Neil

Interesting tour

Berlin has some amazing architecture and we loved learning more about the background of some of the modern buildings. Our guide met us and walked with us to a variety of buildings, ending in Potsdamer Platz, which was well worth the tour just for that site and the information she gave us about it. She was very helpful and we really enjoyed the tour.
