Depart from Berlin’s iconic Brandenburg Gate in the late morning with your guide. You’ll start your experience by learning about this famous passageway’s role in Berlin history.
Continue to the Reichstag, now once again the seat of German parliament in the reunified nation. You’ll continue to Checkpoint Charlie, a famous border crossing between East and West Berlin during the Cold War, discovering what happened on the momentous night when the wall finally fell. Proceed past other Berlin landmarks like the Topography of Terror Museum and the sobering Holocaust Memorial.
Throughout your trip, your expert guide will fill you in on the historical events that shaped the German capital during the 20th century. Starting at the imperial Kaiserzeit, which lasted until the end of World War I, and continuing with the Weimar Republic, the Nazi regime, the Cold War and the divided Berlin and the re-unifed nation, you’ll gain new insight into the turbulent transformations that continue to define Berlin to this day.
Finish the trip at Unter den Linden Street, offering easy access to nearby public transport options.
