The perfect introduction to Berlin for first time visitors or anyone looking to find their feet in the city. This tour offers you a nuanced overview, featuring all the places that epitomise the milestones of the city’s complex history.
We’ll show you what there is to see, and also open your eyes to what lies beneath the surface: the faint traces, the stories, and the voices that warrant no memorials, but tell you just as much about life in Berlin across the ages.
Join us on this trip from Berlin’s beginnings in the swamplands of Brandenburg, through Prussian imperialism and the raucous years of the Weimar Republic, to the Second World War, the Cold War, the ecstasy of reunification, to the vibrant capital that is today’s Berlin.
If you’re short on time and looking to make the most of it, our Berlin Highlights tour covers almost 1,000 years of the city’s history in the space of a day – all the sights, the sounds and the stories.
The length of this tour means that a short snack/coffee break (not included in the tour price) can easily be integrated into the route – or, if requested, a longer meal break.
