An eye-opening tour with a local guide around the heart of old Berlin
Get to know Berlin through the eyes of a local historian! But don't worry, this isn't a dry lecture. Along the way, you'll learn to "read" the city and begin to unlock its secrets. As we walk though town together, you'll be able to ask questions and find out what life was like across the centuries, from the lost world of medieval warlords to daring attempts to escape from East Berlin, standing on the very spot where these things happened.
Far from being simple lectures, my walks are interactive. I pose mysteries and conundrums (just how DO you escape across the infamous Berlin Wall?) and we work together to discover the answers and unlock the city's secrets. It's a great way to get to know your new temporary home.
You'll see a mix of highlights and must-sees, alongside those hidden, out-of-the-way gems that really bring the city to life. For example:
The 5 greatest squares
Berlin's Oldest Pub
The first Berlin Wall
Century old train stations
Site of Hitler's Bunker
