I would 100% recommend this tour. It was free to book and reserve our place and we tipped our tour guide Duarte at the end of the tour based on how we felt it went. Myself and my boyfriend tipped €10 each. We met outside the Starbucks opposite Brandenburg Gate. (Train station Brandburg Tor) at 10am. The tour was just... More

We did the walking tour on a sunny winter's day with Rob. From the beginning, everything was so organised and efficient. Our group was of about 20 & Rob took the time to speak to us all at different stages in the tour so it felt very personalised. The tour was a great overview of Berlin & took in most... More

I recommend this tour to everyone! Even though I always opted for discovering the cities by myself, this FREE tour changed my mind on that. It was very entertaining and in the same time informative. Thumbs up to George, our guide, who managed to give us the big picture on Berlin's and Germany's history in 9 minutes in front of... More

We try to do these tours every city we go to, Sandemans tours leave 3 times a day, so was perfrct for us. We took the 11am tour with Duarte who was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Berlin. He was engaging and easy to follow. The tour pinpoints all the main sites with extra information following the wars. A... More

The 3hr tour around Berlin was fantastic and gave an overview of the history of the city. It goes past all the historic landmarks and has a coffee stop half way. Our tour guide was Franziska, her history knowledge was so thorough and her enthusiasm was contagious. (with a great touch of humour in her delivery) She was absolutely fabulous!... More

We were part of the Free Berlin Walking Tour and the Tour of Sauchenhausen concentration camp. Mark was extremely knowledge of both the Nazi and Communist regimes... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
The centre 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 neighbourhood’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.
