What to Expect
This 2-hour bus tour takes you through Berlin's architecture, where modern structures meet historical buildings. No city in the world has as many contradictions as Berlin, where the spirit of Prussia remains present and the divided city is still alive. Berlin is a mixture of architectural changes and historical time lapse.

Here Prussian history is coupled with the unique buildings designed by Schinkel, the pre-war period with the Bauhaus era, the Second World War and Germania, the division of the city and the corresponding fissures, as well as the postmodern architecture with all its splendors and flaws.

Visit the city's highlights such as the Neue Wache and the Landwehr Canal, and stroll through the Schillerpark and along the remains of the Berlin Wall. See the busy Berlin Central Station, the government district, and the famous Potsdamer Platz.
