Overview

Get an in-depth look at Berlin's highlights and hidden sights on this guided walking tour. Visit landmarks such as Checkpoint Charlie, Brandenburg Gate, and the Berlin Wall, and discover more about the German capital’s history than you would if you were exploring independently. Plus, learn about the Nazi Third Reich, the Cold War, and the Teutonic Knights as you visit fascinating locations that many other tours skip.

What to Expect

Choose to begin your walking tour in East Berlin (meet your guide at the Hackescher Markt train station) or in West Berlin (meet at the Zoologischer Garten train station). If you choose to start your tour in West Berlin, please bring a valid train ticket.

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.
