We had an excellent tour with our guide Lorna. Very knowledgeable. The time flew past and the pace was good, with a refreshment break half way through. It was a great way to get a taster of all the main sights to then be able to plan the rest of our visit, and indeed a return visit. I would also... More

I had a fantastic private tour at night with Berlin Walks. Philippa was a great guide - very knowledgable and friendly. It was a great way to see the key sites as well as hear interesting accounts of people and historic moments. Thanks!

We had fantastic 2,5 hours with the tour guide Sam. The tour was not only very informative and interesting but also funny. I can highly recommend! :)

This walking tour was excellent, we were taken to sights around Berlin we wouldn't have found ourselves. Our tour guide Jess was incredibly knowledgable and did a fantastic job of giving us so much information and helped us piece together the history of Germany and Berlin. His recommendations for exhibitions to visit were really good and there were no questions... More

Despite the cold, the 4+ hours flew by too fast! Jess was so knowledgeable, interesting, funny. Thanks to his superb tour, our first day in Berlin was truly memorable and helped shape our plans for the rest of the stay. Many thanks, Jess. M and E Harris. UK

This is an absolute must! We had a great guide - Jess - who took us around the main sights and explained their significance. He was entertaining, informed and helped us get our bearings.

It was a cold, sunny day in Berlin and I went on the Infamous Third Reich Sites walking tour. Kevin was our guide, a historian and teacher from Britain, who was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He told us all about the grim Nazi past and set it in context. His stories and answers to our questions brought it all to... More

We took the Highlights and Hidden Sights tour with Jonathon, and it was a great introduction and welcome to the city. Jonathon took us to all of the "major" Berlin sites and had a lot of good extra info to pass along. He did a great job of projecting his voice for the 40+ people that were in our group,... More

We took the Original Berlin Walk with Dennis as our guide. We got four hours of thrilling history and interesting facts, he really was a walking history book with a fabulous talent for storytelling. It was a great experience to see and visit places from the dark WWII era we only had heard about. He also shared his and his... More

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
