See Berlin from an insider’s perspective on this half-day walking tour! With your expert local guide, see Berlin’s main attractions including the Berlin Wall, Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag parliament building and Checkpoint Charlie, as well as the lesser-known places that regular tours usually miss. Learn fascinating facts about Berlin during World War 2 and the Cold War, and listen as your guide explains what life was like for Berlin’s citizens during those turbulent times.
  • Check off top Berlin attractions in a single tour, saving valuable vacation time
  • Guide's commentary reveals facts you might not have discovered on your own
  • Get to know the street scene from the ground up; find places to return later in your trip
  • Stop at hidden gems that many other tours miss
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.
