You want to visit one of Berlin´s museums or spontaneously stop at a restaurant or go shopping? You want to see the glass dome of the Reichstag from the inside? All of this and more can be included in the tour, while you will still see all the famous sights that Berlin has to offer: the Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island, the TV Tower, the Red Town Hall, Berlin Cathedral, glamourous boulevards and squares like Unter den Linden, Kurfüstendamm and Gendarmenmarkt, the Victory Column and much, much more. You will learn in detail how Berlin´s dramatic history in the 20th century unfolded, from the Nazis´ rise to power to the destruction in World War II and the city´s division after the war, and you will visit original sites of historical events like the burning of books in 1933 or spectacular attempts to cross the border fortifications and escape to the West. See hot spots of the Cold War like Checkpoint Charlie and understand the joy of Berliners in 1989 when the Wall finally fell. Our tour guide will give you an idea how the city has changed since then and how Berlin became one of Europe´s most popular cities for young people, a creative center attracting artists, music and fashion lovers from all over the world. You will walk the new government quarter with its modern office buildings and see the impressive Chancellery that has become Germany´s new center of power. Potsdamer Platz has been reconstructed by an elite of world famous star architects. You will get to know where construction is going on right now and what the city might look like in a few years from now. And while walking the city and talking with your tour guide you will get a host of new ideas on what else you might want to see in the city and where to go out in the evening …

Pergamon Museum and/or Neues Museum
These two museums are part of Museum Island, UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1999. They are famous for treasures like the bust of Egyptian queen Nefertiti or the Pergamon altar, a greek temple that has been reconstructed inside Pergamon museum (currently closed due to repair works). Your guide will be pleased to visit one of the museums (or both) with you and show you the highlights.
Wall Museum at Checkpoint Charlie
The former border crossing Checkpoint Charlie was the site of dramatic events like the tank confrontation in 1961. Directly next to the checkpoint a private collection opened in 1963, showing devices that were used for flight attempts, for example, self-made swimming suits, kites, hot air balloons, ropes and VW cars. The collection has grown into a full-scale museum with exhibits on four floors covering the history of the Wall, the Cold War and the Human Rights Movement. Visit the museum with our tour guide and let him show you the museum´s highlights.
