Your private tour to the most important sights of Berlin

Visiting the highlights is the best way to get to know the city - particularly if this is your first time in Berlin. The story of Berlin goes back over 800 years. It is filled with fierce battles and wars and populated by outstanding personalities. The city has had its share in the dark and the bright chapters of the 19th and 20th century and more than once it was the center point of world history. By touring the city center and its highlights by foot or in a car you will get a good overview of Berlin's long and colorful history.

We will touch on all important parts of Berlin history from the times when margraves ruled the territory and Prussian times which saw Berlin rising to the capital of the German Empire, from the era of the Weimarer Republic to the dark times of the Third Reich, and see how Berlin was rebuilt after the war, where the Berlin wall was and what has changed since the reunification in 1990.


Sites we can visit on the tour depending on your interests:

Brandenburg Gate
Holocaust memorial
Potsdamer Platz
Berlin wall
Checkpoint Charlie
Museum island
Berlin cathedral
Bebelplatz (book burnings)
Unter den Linden
Nikolai quarter
Red town hall

I will put together the perfect tour for you and in case you want to see even more I can adjust the time of the tour as well. If you have hired a car with a driver we can also go to more remote sights and see more places on our tour. Please contact me for more information and pricing.
