Explore the heart of historical Berlin in this picturesque virtual experience of the Nikolai Quarter. Trace the city’s very beginnings and immerse yourself in the beauty of quaint cobbled streets as you visit churches dating back to the 13th century. Your expert guide will lead you through this rich history as you learn about the origins of the city itself and how one of today's busiest European capitals started as a mere fishing village alongside the river Spree. Pass by the Ephraim Palais, the most “beautiful corner” of Berlin and discover 18th century architecture at the charming Knoblauchhaus town house. Discover the legend of St. George and the dragon and marvel at how Berlin was rebuilt after the war - all from the comfort of your living room!
