Berlin has a pull like no other. Whether you’re a history buff, a street-art fanatic or a party animal, Berlin stands out among the rest. With so much to see, you’ve got to move fast, so get on a guided run to explore the German capital.
See all aspects of Berlin’s chaotic history brought to life in its museums. The UNESCO World Heritage Museumsinsel (Museum Island) boasts the highest concentration. Here, you can find all sorts of art and history museums that explain why Berlin is what it is today. Follow the rise and fall of the Nazis, the Second World War and the Cold War.
However, running tours in Berlin show you the city’s past without having to set foot in a museum. The famous Brandenburg Gate, located between the Holocaust Memorial and the Reichstag building, harks back to the Baroque period. Other key spots for sightrunning are the TV Tower in Alexanderplatz, Karl Marx Allee and Checkpoint Charlie – possibly the most famous crossing over Berlin’s physical and ideological divide. You can’t talk about Berlin without mentioning the Berliner Mauer, the Berlin Wall. Take in the 105 paintings of the Wall’s open-air East Side Gallery with your knowledgable, private guide.
But Berlin isn’t just about history. There are all kinds of weird and wonderful restaurants, bars and clubs to explore. Run through the neighbourhoods of Neukölln, Gräfekiez or Alt-Treptow to let your hip, fancy or natural side flourish.
The Berlin Marathon in autumn is always tempting, but the city is great for joggers all year round. Your friendly guide is waiting for you, so lace up for an unforgettable experience with Go! Running Tours in Berlin.
