All about Berlin on foot and public transportation


Berlin is a combination of grit and glamour, culture and techno, tangible, wrenching history and a vibrant present that has not forgotten its past. This private panoramic tour is best for first time visitors and will give you a well rounded impression of what is most important.

Discover the surprising origins of this green metropolis and get a feel of how the city grew through the centuries into the Prussian empire to end up as the most inspiring, progressive and tolerant city in Europe between the two world wars. Then came the downfall and Hitler's megalomaniac plans to create "Germania", the capital of the Thousand Year Reich. All this is indeed still visible today. We will trace not only the Berlin Wall but all important sights and monuments as well as discover how Berliners live today and how the city that never rests is constantly re-inventing itself.

Karin was a terrific guide....her love for her city of Berlin and an acute knowledge of the historic and political impacts of Berlin made our first day in the city one we will long remember. I can highly recommend Karin to anyone looking to explore Berlin with a seasoned and knowledgeable guide.
