A great tour for a first time in Berlin
This tour encompasses 300 years of history, from the Prussian Kingdom and Empire to the Third Reich and the Cold War. You will learn about the history of the Reichstag and Brandenburg Gate.
The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe was built near the former Nazi Reich Chancellery and Hitler's bunker.
A little further is the Potsdamer Platz, once the busiest place in Berlin, which became a barren land after the war until the fall of the Wall. It is now the new heart of Berlin, a place where world-famous architects have left their marks.
The Topography of Terror, an indoor and outdoor exhibition, was the site of the central institution of Nazi persecution and terror. Also become acquainted with the Third Reich architecture, such as the former Ministry of Aviation that is now the Federal Ministry of Finance.
There also stands the largest remaining segment of the outer Berlin Wall. You can then learn much about the Cold War and what happened at Check Point Charlie.

Nicole was great and my wife and I learned so much about Berlin walking around with her. We never would have been able to see so much if she hadn't taken us around the city. I would highly recommend using her for a walking tour if you ever get to Berlin
