Full description

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 this has resulted in 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 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. Arrive in the East to Hackescher Markt and hear all about the former Jewish Quarter. See Museum Island and get the scoop on the best times to visit the museums. 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 New Berlin, where East and West are no boundaries.

Jules is the BEST tour guide one can have. She knows the history of Berlin inside out, and her communication skills are excellent. The level of detail provided, along with her passion for everything Berlin, made us want to return to the city and explore more. Thank you, Jules; we're grateful for the time we had with you!

The walking tour was excellent. We enjoyed the tour very much particularly due to excellent commentary by our guide who was very friendly and very knowledgeable person. Huge shout out to Chris Moniz for being such an amazing guide. This tour is totally worth it.
