Overview

Our guide to Berlin starts at the magnificent Reichstag where we talk about its war torn history - and its exciting modern incarnation.

Over the next 4 or 5 hours, depending on how many breaks you take, we then direct you round to the Brandenburg Gate where we explain not only what you’re looking at but we also put this historic symbol of Germany into context. Afterwards, we pay a visit to the new Holocaust Memorial, and our Berlin guide explains the thinking behind it - and reveals why it's proved to be so controversial.

We then wander down Unter den Linden, hear about what the name means and take a short detour down to Checkpoint Charlie. Afterwards your Berlin guide takes in the impressive architecture of Bebel Platz but also talks about the most shameful episode in the square’s history – and the points out the simple but moving memorial to that awful event which so many visitors miss.

After the glorious Berlin cathedral, the Berliner Dom we finally we arrive at the TV Tower.
