What to Expect
Explore Berlin like a local on a 4-hour walking tour that covers its main sights and uncovers some hidden locations. You will be in the company of expert city resident guides that are keen to share their knowledge of Berlin’s tumultuous past and exciting future.

Since the return of the German capital to Berlin nothing has stayed the same, and what has resulted is the largest construction effort in modern history! Berlin truly is a city at the crossroads of a turbulent past, while in the process of forging an optimistic future. As the New Europe gravitates back towards its center, Berlin prepares to play the role of gateway between the East and West – this time as a European metropolis.

Beginning your adventure in the heart of Cold War West Berlin's capitalist heart, visit the looming spire of the Memorial Church, before a stroll to the impressive Victory Column. This amazing spot marks the birthplace of the German nation. Follow the route of the Soviet attack up to the final battle ground of the Reichstag Parliament, now home to Norman Foster's majestic glass dome. Walk along the futuristically charged Government Quarter and Federal Chancellery before stepping into the East.

Pass over the line of the Death Strip to the exact location above Hitler's Bunker and under the Brandenburg Gate, the symbol of a reunited Berlin. Then, take a moment to reflect at the Memorial for the Murdered Jews of Europe, before walking through the intersection of Checkpoint Charlie.

The tour ends with an account of the momentous events that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall, while standing amidst the heart of the East German Government Quarter and the New Berlin. Get a glimpse into what it´s like living in the New Berlin, where East and West are no boundaries.
