Summary of The Day: Take a stroll through the streets of Berlin and learn about the city's colorful history and unique modern culture. Your guided tour begins at the the very heart of Berlin's new government quarter. After we meet at the German flag in front of the Reichstag Building, we'll visit the sites of the Battle of Berlin, the outcome of which put an end to the horrors of Nazi Germany.
Times have changed and Berlin is no exception. As part of our tour we'll explore the changes in the city's political landscape over the past 30 years, while gaining further insight into Berlin's uber-modern outlook. Narration will be supplemented with historical documents and old maps of the city.
Learn about the events, places and landmarks that have made Berlin what it is today: Brandenburg Gate and the beautiful Pariser Platz. Walk through the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe. Visit the site of Fuehrerbunker, the place where Hitler hid out during the final battle of WWII; see the former Nazi ministries, the Topography of Terror, Checkpoint Charlie and the remains of the Berlin Wall; hear stories of the Cold War, GDR fugitives and day-to-day life in divided Germany; and visit the place where young Peter Fechter was murdered by border guards in 1962.
Then we'll lighten the mood with a visit to Gendarmenmarkt, widely regarded to be the most beautiful place in Berlin, and a walk down Berlin's storied boulevards: Friedrichstrasse and Unter den Linden, the site where the book burning of 1933 took place. Afterwards we'll tour the campus of Humboldt University, the most prestigious learning institute in Berlin. Our tour will end at the melting pot of Berlin culture, a neighborhood filled with world-class museums, beautiful old churches, countless hidden gems, and a quirky flea market on Saturdays!
