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.
