Berlin has a history like no other city. From a proud empire under the Kaisers destroyed by World War One to the capital of progressive culture in the 1920s, Berlin would be turned upside-down after Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. Following the devastation of WWII the city would be divided by the Allies, only to become the global symbol of the Cold War when it became divided by the Berlin Wall in 1961. Finally, the German capital would become a symbol of hope when in 1989 the Wall came down, allowing Germany to become one country again.
Using the latest historical research our guides will show you the wild, tragic story of this great city. Stroll through the Brandenburg Gate, stand above the remains of Hitler’s bunker, and cross the Cold War frontier at Checkpoint Charlie. In under 4 hours you’ll see it all!
