This whirlwind private tour with a vehicle is designed to show you Berlin’s essential highlights in just two hours. One of our professional, local guides and a driver will meet you at your hotel or a pre-arranged meeting point. You will then receive the ultimate crash course in Berlin’s history.
See the Reichstag, burned down after Hitler’s rise to power and now a bold symbol of modern German democracy, and pass through the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin’s most iconic landmark. Walk in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, and cross the border at Checkpoint Charlie, the frontier of the Cold War. Then journey through the iconic concrete stelae of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe to learn about the tragedy of the holocaust and stand at the site of Hitler’s bunker – where history’s most notorious criminal committed suicide as Berlin lay in ruins at the end of WW2.
You will also drive down Unter den Linden, Berlin’s royal boulevard, and stand at the center of the Museum Island: the 19th century city’s architectural heart and a UNESCO world heritage site. Time will also be taken to explore the old Nazi government quarter to see some remaining examples of Nazi architecture and the former SS and Gestapo Headquarters. You will also experience the pomp and grandeur of Prussian Berlin in Gendarmenmarkt and Bebelplatz, two of Berlin’s most beautiful squares.
At the end of the tour your guide will accompany you back to your hotel, or to a drop-off point of your choosing. They will also give you tips and recommendations to help you make the most out of your stay.
As always your experience can be tailored to you, so please let us know if you have any special requests or needs. We are also more than happy to help you with restaurant reservations and museum or gallery visits.
