Visit landmarks such as Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and the Berlin Wall, and discover more about the German capital’s history than you would if you were exploring independently.

With your guide leading you, embark on a stroll through the German capital. Listen to a detailed narrative of Berlin's history, from the times of the Teutonic Knights to its modern incarnation as a cosmopolitan metropolis.

Explore highlights such as Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, and the Reichstag Building. Plus, visit fascinating sites many visitors miss, such as Unter den Linden, the Easter German Government Quarter, and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church.

Your tour concludes near Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building.

Hi As previous respondents group at the meeting spot is large and my heart sank ! However it split into smaller much more manageable groups of about12/15. I really don't like groups but this felt quite comfortable.
