We’ll start our journey at the Oberbaumbrücke Bridge, a border crossing that used to separate East and West Berlin during the Cold War. From there, we’ll head to the East Side Gallery, where you can experience the transformation of a section of the Berlin Wall into an open-air gallery. We’ll visit Köllnischer Park and the Märkisches Museum, which houses an open-air museum of stone artworks and was once home to live bears as a symbol of the city.
Our next stop is the iconic Alexanderplatz, with its impressive Berlin Television Tower that offers panoramic views of the city. We’ll pass by the Red Town Hall and make our way to the majestic Berlin Dom and Memorial to the Victims of War and Conflict. Our tour will continue to the Berlin Wall Memorial, which includes a preserved section of the wall, an outdoor exhibition, and a documentation center that tells the story of the wall’s history.
Next up is Checkpoint Charlie, a symbol of the Cold War that almost sparked the Third World War. We’ll also see the remains of the Gestapo prison, where political opponents were interrogated and executed by the Nazis. We’ll visit three memorials for the victims of Nazism: Jews, Sinti and Roma, and homosexuals. We’ll take you to the site of the underground bunker where Hitler hid at the end of World War II. And let’s not forget the Kulturforum, home to the State Philharmonic, the library and the New Art Gallery.
Our tour will also take you to the administrative heart of Berlin, the Reichstag building. We go to Tirgarten to see Memorial to the Soviet Army and the Victory Column that was reconstructed as part of plans to redevelop Berlin as the “Germania capital of peace”.
