Plenty of insights, feeling like a local! With your private guide


Whether you only have one day in Berlin or you are looking forward to a rich introduction and exploration: This day will make a difference! We will check out the city and be in touch with its history and contemporary situation. I will take you to the main landmarks and put everything that we see in the proper context. You will get a firm grip around monuments, history and today's situation of Germany's capital. A fun day that will give you as much Berlin as you like - and also some taste of it . . . We might also climb one or the other monument, if you like.

Itinerary

We will visit and put into context the major landmarks of Berlin that you are waiting to see. The Reichstag parliament building, the Brandenburg Gate, the Holocaust Memorial and the new developments around Potsdamer Platz. We will go into the history of Berlin, see the Gendarmenmarkt, understand its looks and venture further into the very spot where Berlin started its vibrant development. We will see the legacy of Unter den Linden, the icon boulevard and understand the city's prime position regarding the arts. A tour of one of the most fascinating changes that the city witnessed under the socialist leadership will provide you with a totally different perspective on Berlin. Depending on your interest we can also check out the so-called "old west", which formed the formerly and now revived hub of West-Berlin when the city was still divided into two. Plus many more sights along the way, lots of insights and surely a fun day all in all. Don't miss out!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I usually meet customers at their hotel. Any other meeting spot is possible of course. Just let me know your preferences.

End location: We can end the tour according to your further interests and plans for the rest of the day. We may discuss this at the beginning of the tour.

Duration: 6 hours

Transportation

Walking and public transportation. If you prefere a private driver, then just let me know.

What’s Included

You will spend the 6 hours with me and I will guide you through Berlin and show you various landmarks. You will get all the relevant history along with a fun day exploring Germany's capital - and I can be quite entertaining... We will walk, use public transport or an occasional taxi, if you want. A great day out.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

25 EUR - Sooner or later throughout the day you will want to try some of Berlin's culinary delicacies. I can organise some lunch, if you wish. The sum is a rough estimation. Plus a day-ticket for public transport. Let me know if you'd rather have a private chauffeur ...

What’s Extra

Any food, drinks or souvenirs that you might fancy are not included. Also you might need to pay for public transport.

Restrictions

Any tour that I offer without a driver can also be booked with a car and private chauffeur if needed. I use a driver of my own as well as a comfortable Mercedes-Benz Vito. Please contact me for an individual quote.
