Berlin past and present: history experience
Berlin past and present: history experience

We wish our history lessons could have been as immersive and exciting as exploring a city with one of our friendly hosts. There we were, drudging it out in a classroom. Let Berlin be your ‘classroom’ and venture through its complex history with an authentic experience designed to cover all the famous attractions, as well as bring something more personal and modern to the plate. As a city that wears its past on its sleeve, particularly with regards to WW2, there is much more to Berlin’s unflinching urban facade should you decide to venture beyond the tourism circuit. Take in significant landmarks like Tränenpalast and Checkpoint Charlie, before delving right into the multi-faceted modern city scene, checking out Potsdamer Platz and the East Side Gallery - talk about a time warp. Your host will strive to curate a truly blended experience for you, and the best part is, it’s entirely at your pace. Grab some food along the way, chat, chat some more, and enjoy!
