This tour of Berlin begins with a hotel lobby meet and greet at any centrally located accommodation. Learn about Berlin’s volatile history and discover the diverse architecture and thriving art and culture of today, all while exploring the city in a comfortable, private vehicle.
Visit Checkpoint Charlie, the best-known Berlin Wall crossing point between East and West Berlin during the Cold War and Charlottenburg Palace, a former summer residence for the House of Hohenzollern, a dynasty of former princes, electors, kings and emperors. Stop at Alexanderplatz, a large public square and transport hub in the central Mitte district of Berlin. Sample the popular local snack called currywurst, a simple dish of pork sausages and ketchup (own expense).
Hop out of the vehicle and walk alongside the remains of the Berlin Wall at the the Berlin Wall Memorial and East Side Gallery. Visit the famous museums on the Spree river's Museum Island and stop at Kaufhaus des Westens, aka KaDeWe, to do some shopping, if desired.
Other points of interest include the iconic Fernsehturm de Berlín (TV tower), Potsdamer Platz, Brandenburg Gate, Berlin Cathedral and much more.
Finally, a return trip to the hotel concludes the tour.
