Europe's modern history book

No city has defined 20th Century history like Berlin. From the final days of the German Empire, to the tumultuous years between the two World Wars, from Hitler's terrifying reign over Europe, to the division of the Cold War world symbolized by the Wall – Berlin has seen it all, and now we show it you through the eyes of Berlin’s best local tour guides.

Discover the many faces of Berlin with a passionate local guide

The original FREE Tour of Berlin covers many of the top Berlin attractions, including the Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, the Brandenburg Gate, and the site of Hitler's Bunker. After you've got the overview with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us. For those wanting tours of the Nazi era, the Third Reich Tour takes you to the Nazi government district, former Jewish district, and area covering memorials to the Nazi's victims. We also believe everyone should visit a concentration camp at least once in their lives, and so the Sachsenhausen Memorial tour runs every day. Click this link for some of the most frequently asked questions we get about visiting the former Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

Of course, when the Third Reich fell the Cold War began, and the SANDEMANs Red Berlin Tour will take you to some of Berlin's most fascinating areas, including the Berlin Wall Memorial. But Berlin is not just known for its history! Some of the top areas of Berlin are covered in our Alternative Berlin tour, including graffiti (we call it street art), squats and underground clubs.

If you want some nature, explore the most beautiful area near Berlin with a day trip to Potsdam, where you'll see palaces, gardens and the infamous Bridge of Spies. After all those walking tours, you'll need a drink! Experience the best of German beer with the Berlin Beer Tour, or if you're looking for a party, join us every night of the week for the best bar crawl in Berlin, our top-rated Pub Crawl, TripAdvisor's number one nightlife activity!
