Private Taxi Tour durch Berlin Ost und West und Kiez ca 3-4h

5. Private Taxi Tour durch Berlin Ost und West und Kiez ca 3-4h

On day ouf our tour I will pick you up from your accommodation or hotel. Within the Berlin S-Bahn-Ring (city circle ring) without extra costs, pick-up from the airport is also possible, but then you may choose better our Welcome Tour (or Farewell Tour, if you want to depart). You don't need to wait outside, please wait for most comfort until I send you a text message on your mobile. After a brief overview about our tour let us start. Enyoy the ride in a luxurios SUV car, with leather seats, AC and all comfort. You sit on a higher position, especially in the fond for a better sight. From outside you are not visible. Your tour is individual, but I have of course a round trip prepared with the most spectaculous and interesting sites of Berlin. This is important, if not not, you won't get the story of Berlin, with its progress from the time of the prussian kings and later emperors, and the deep fall with the nazitime and second world war. Berlin get destroyed up to 80 percent in the center, but a lot was reconstructed in the past. And then the dividing of the city in 4 sectors, forming later East and West Berlin. With a partly differenct, partly similar developpement in both parts. But grounded in two different and completely opponent systems, capitalism and communism. And then the wonder of the reunification after a peaceful revolution in 1989. Since then an increasing city, towards its former border section, a death zone, and implementing there the new parliament and government center. And growing in numbers and attractivities, with its very lively and young culture, from high established opera art to the party scene. And you will get in touch of all of this, not only from your convenient seats, but also on short walks to some main sites or interesting places. Let's start for example at Potsdamer Platz. This was part of the death stripe between East and West. Why death zone? Here was literally nothing left from the time pre-war. The ruins after the destroying were erased on both sides, and here the stripe between the front, west wall and the second, back wall was 80m wide. In the nineties is was developped and reconstructed with modern building, the socalled Sony Center and the Mercedes-Benz Quarter. Now we find here new hotels and entertainment, offices and residential flats. We start from here to the North, passing the former ministrial gardens, towards Brandenburg Gate. And before passing this first time, we will see the 2711 steles of the holocaust memorial of the 6 mio murdered jews of Europe. Also Brandenburg Gate was part of the wall, with no check point, like at Potdamer Platz. But it was already a gate of the ancient city in the baroque time. This is the reason that the old city was totally part of East Berlin, because the city spread out to all the sides and especially to the West 150 years ago. So I usually try to show you first the highlights of the west, with more riding inbetween, and later the historical sites, situated in the East.

From the Block of Women that resisted the Nazi party. You will hear how the movement was the first to stand up against tyranny. Otto Weidt protected his Jewish workers from persecution. The Museum Blindenwerkstatt is named in his honor. A hero among troubled times. And what better way to keep Jewish identity alive? Education. The Jüdisches Gymnasium Moses Mendelssohn is the first school to reach out to poor Jewish families. Education kept the community stronger. The Memorial Jewish Cemetery is a Holocaust memorial. Architect Peter Eisenman’s 2,711 slabs keep the honor of the deceased alive.

Berlin: Jewish Heritage and History Private Guided Tour

8. Berlin: Jewish Heritage and History Private Guided Tour

The Jews were spread worldwide after being exiled from their land. Many settled in Europe, staying steadfast in keeping their old faith and customs amid constant persecutions. Germany, including Berlin, excluded the Jews from normal life, but the Jews were persistent and eventually received full rights as citizens. From isolated ghettos and communities, the Jews climbed to high social positions in economy, science, culture and the new emerging democratic politics of Germany until the Nazis took power. The tour will tell the story of Jews in Germany and the Nazi attempt to eradicate them from Europe.

Or we have a real lunch break in a very cosy restaurant in an original old building. Inside looking like an old pub, serving German meals like Schnitzel (but also pizza or salad, if your prefer). It's your choice! Relax and explore German kitchen culture. Or a shorter break with a Berliner Currywurst (Bratwurst in curry sauce). Let's start for example at Potsdamer Platz.

My guests were very impressed with the tour. The Hackeschen Höfe are generally known, but hearing the historical background along with little stories and anecdotes from art and culture was interesting and informative. Even I, as a Berliner, didn't know the other courtyards and I will - now encouraged - take a few more private walks into these courtyards and the surrounding historically interesting area.

Thanks for everything Gunter! It was very nice to meet you! I loved the tour, my grandma also loved it and learned a lot, and that was what she was looking for.!! Thank you so much, it was way better that we expected. You know a lot!!

The tour was very informative and entertaining, thanks to our guide Susanne. We got to "corners" of Berlin that we would never have seen otherwise. Recommended 👍

Great tour with the best weather in January. The 2 hours and 15 minutes flew by. The guide was absolutely committed and talked very interestingly.

The man who did the tour was very nice, friendly, knew a lot and made the tour very interesting. It was just great.
