Make the most out of your visit and discover Berlin's top attractions with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 2-hour Berlin Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to Berlin and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see sights such as the Brandenburg Gate, the Berlin Wall, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and much more.


Explore Berlin's top sites with a private tour guide

From Berlin’s humble beginnings as a small village in the 13th century, through to her role as one of the dominant political and cultural powerhouses of today, you will be guided through the German capital’s rich historical past. Covering the city's rise to significance as capital of the Prussian Empire, through to the darker days seen under Hitler and the Nazis, before the division of East and West in the Cold War, Berlin has held a unique position at the crossroads of 20th century history.

Reflecting on the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe one minute, and marvelling at the iconic Brandenburg Gate the next, you will come face-to-face with modern history like never before. All of this experienced, of course, in the company of your entertaining (yet informative) local guide.
