Highlights

  • See remaining examples of Nazi architecture at the old Nazi government quarter

Overview

See the Reichstag, which now stands as a bold symbol of modern German democracy, and the towering column of the Siegessäule, erected to commemorate Prussia’s military victories in the 19th century. Pass by the Brandenburg Gate, one of Berlin’s most recognizable landmarks, before following in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, and crossing the border at Checkpoint Charlie, the frontier of the Cold War. Visit the iconic concrete stelae of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and learn about the tragedy of the holocaust, then make your way to Hitler’s Bunker, the site of the Nazi leader’s final days during World War II.

You will also explore the old Nazi government quarter where you can see some remaining examples of Nazi architecture, such as the former Luftwaffe Headquarters, before making your way to Museum Island, the city’s architectural center and a UNESCO world heritage site. Gaze upon the beautiful Berliner Dom (Berlin Cathedral) and the newly reconstructed City Palace. Discover St. Hedwig’s Cathedral and the State Opera House, two stunning examples of Berlin’s architectural heritage, then make your way to the book-burning memorial in Bebelplatz, which acts as a somber reminder of the Nazi regime’s censorship and suppression of intellectual freedom.

Driving along Unter den Linden, the old royal boulevard, your expert guide will show you the former Soviet Embassy, a symbol of the city’s Cold War history, before dropping you off at Friedrichstrasse, the former heart of the roaring 1920s in Berlin. From here, you can decide whether you would like to go on a cruise of the river Spree or spend some time exploring the many shops and restaurants in the area.

The one-hour river cruise is an opportunity to explore the German Government Quarter, including the German Chancellery, as well as sites just outside of the inner city, such as the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of World Cultures) and the beautiful cobbled streets of the Nikolaiviertel.

2. Reichstag

During your visit to Berlin, you will have the opportunity to witness some of the most iconic landmarks in the city. The Reichstag, for example, is an impressive building that was reconstructed after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It now houses the German Parliament and features a stunning glass dome, offering panoramic views of the city.

We will be visiting the Reichstag only from the outside.

3. Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate, another iconic landmark, is a symbol of peace and reunification. This historic structure, which was once a gate to the city, is now a must-see attraction that is beloved by both tourists and locals alike.

4. Topography of Terror

The Berlin Wall, which divided the city for decades, is a fascinating sight to behold. This concrete barrier is a powerful reminder of the Cold War and the struggles that the city went through during this period. 

5. Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

You will also have the opportunity to visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a somber reminder of the tragic history of the Jewish people in Europe. This powerful monument, designed by architect Peter Eisenman, features 2,711 concrete slabs arranged in a grid pattern. It serves as a poignant memorial to the millions of Jewish victims of the Holocaust.

6. Hitler’s Bunker

One of the most intriguing sights you will see is Hitler's Bunker, which was the last refuge for the Nazi dictator during the Second World War. This underground structure is now closed to the public, but you can visit the location and learn about its history from your knowledgeable guide.

7. Museum Island

Museum Island, home to the Berliner Dom, St. Hedwig’s Cathedral, and the State Opera House, is a must-visit destination for art and culture enthusiasts. This unique island in the heart of Berlin is home to some of the world's most renowned museums, including the Pergamon Museum and the Alte Nationalgalerie. 

8. Berlin Cathedral

The Berliner Dom, a stunning baroque cathedral, is a striking landmark that stands out in the island's skyline.

We will be visiting the Berlin Cathedral only from the outside.

9. Friedrichstrasse

From here, you can decide whether you would like to go on a cruise of the river Spree or spend some time exploring the many shops and restaurants in the area. 

10. Cruise of the river Spree

The one-hour river cruise is an opportunity to explore the German Government Quarter, including the German Chancellery, as well as sites just outside of the inner city, such as the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (House of World Cultures) and the beautiful cobbled streets of  the Nikolaiviertel.
