Ah, Berlin! From humble village beginnings to the capital of the mighty kingdom, then empire, through darkness and division of the Nazi and Communist eras and back to its glory as the defining capital of European culture, trends and fanciness – what a place to tell stories about!

On our tour we will journey from the east to the west, crossing times, rivers and stories that, especially in the last 200 years, have shaped not only the city but the entire world. Let us tell you who that Alexander on the Platz was, is there really any medieval Berlin and what are the connections between American and German Martin Luthers. Add to that the Humboldt University, Checkpoint Charlie and our finishing point, the Brandenburg Gate with its memories from the time of the Wall and you will have learned the basics of Berlin’s identity.

We will also revisit the stories connected with the darkest moments of the city, nation and Europe: Adolf Hitler’s rise to power and the resulting war and the Holocaust – the Jewish Memorial will remind us of the fragility of the world around us.

On the upper note feel free to ask us about the local hip and party scene, many calling it the defining nightlife scene of Europe and the beginning of the world trends. Berlin has learned its lesson – let the feeling of inclusiveness, hundreds of cultures coexisting and shaping the world for better take you!

On the tour we will see and discuss:

  • TV tower

  • Red Town Hall and the remains of the old Berlin

  • Museum Island and the Berlin Cathedral

  • Unter Den Linden and Humboldt University

  • Gendarmenmarkt and Book Burning Sites

  • Checkpoint Charlie and Berlin Wall stories

  • Adolf Hitler’s Bunker Site

  • Jewish Holocaust Memorial

  • Brandenburg Gate

After joining the general Berlin tour check out our Alternative Berlin and Communist & Socialist free tours to understand Berlin and its history much better!

We had a great tour with JR on our first day in Berlin. He was so engaging and shared so many interesting facts about the city. We loved that he included stories about his own personal experiences of Berlin and moving to the city.
