Overview

Why not discover the rich and turbulent history of 20th century Berlin from the comfort of your own home? Travel back in time and under the grand arches of the Brandenburg Gate to explore some of the city’s most historical sites, including Berlin’s famous central park, the Tiergarten and post-War Soviet memorial. Your expert guide will lead you along avenues that have witnessed world historical moments including Ronald Reagan’s 1987 speech, “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this Wall!” Packing over a hundred years of history into one hour, don’t forget to grab a glimpse of the glistening glass dome atop the Reichstag and watch history come to life during this incredible and interactive virtual experience.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Berlin’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Berlin. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Berlin of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Berlin's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

The entire tour is designed to be as interactive as you desire. You can ask questions, you can request to go back and look at something again, you have all the freedom and participation of a private walking tour, all from the comfort of your own home.

The video calling software used for the tour is called Zoom. You will need to have it downloaded on your laptop, tablet or cellphone – with a connection to speakers or headphones – in order to participate in the tour. Also, remember to keep an eye on the time difference when choosing a time for your private virtual experience, as all times stated are in Berlin time!
