The essential tour of Berlin’s highlights, focusing on 20th-century history. In just three hours, we’ll see the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Jewish Memorial, site of Hitler’s bunker, Potsdamer Platz, the former Luftwaffe HQ, the Berlin Wall and Checkpoint Charlie.
On our whirlwind tour through Berlin’s city centre, we’ll also see:
where Otto von Bismarck and his contemporaries carved up the continent of Africa during the ‘Congo Conference’
where the Communist revolutionary Karl Liebknecht called for an end to the Great War
where Kaiser Wilhelm II met Buffalo Bill
where Adolf Hitler breakfasted
where Annie Oakley nearly changed the course of the 20th century
the site of the Gestapo and SS Headquarters
a bullet-ridden statue which just about survived WWII
a monument to Georg Elser, the would-be assassin who nearly succeeded in killing Hitler in 1939
the last Berlin Wall-era watchtower left in the city centre
the very spot where President Reagan called upon ‘Mister Gorbachev’ to… you know the rest!
All of this in three hours? It can be done, on my most popular tour!
