Berlin Highlights, History, and Government District

2. Berlin Highlights, History, and Government District

Enjoy a trip through time in the history of Berlin on this two hour tour of the politically-significant Mitte district. In 1993, the federal government of Germany relocated to Berlin, and finding a suitable location there didn't take long. There was plenty of space along the area where the Berlin Wall once stood, and building on both sides of the former border symbolized reunification. It resulted in a completely new district, one which now enthralls people from home and abroad with its spaciousness, transparency, and magnificent riverside paths. This tour of Berlin will amaze you by presenting so much German history in such a small area. Past horrors lie directly next to an optimistic path to the future. This entertaining tour starts at Potsdamer Platz. Up close and personal with lots of archival material, you’ll relive the demise and resurrection of the entire area. See the area surrounding the station before heading on towards the symbols of the vibrant Berlin of the 1920s. Forgotten and pushed to the fringes, Potsdamer Platz experienced an unparalleled resurgence during this time. Learn where the Berlin Wall once stood and see a hidden watchtower from the GDR. Find out why the Holocaust Memorial is located in the former center of power and the Brandenburg Gate is the only remaining gate to the city of the original 16. At the end of the tour, explore the current government buildings with interesting commentary and insider knowledge from your guide. Discover background information about the construction of the buildings, enjoy the vast open spaces, and follow the remains of the Berlin Wall along the former border between East and West Germany.

Berlin: 3-hour Introductory Tour with a Historian

4. Berlin: 3-hour Introductory Tour with a Historian

Berlin has been at the epicenter of the most catastrophic conflicts of modern times but the seeds of these hostilities were planted centuries before. This 3-hour tour of Germany’ s capital city takes a broad view of the political and ideological forces that unleashed genocide and global war in the 20th century. Exploring Berlin’ s iconic landmarks while emphasizing the tumultuous Nazi and Cold War eras, you will learn how in the 1700s tiny Prussia’ s violent transformation into Europe’ s dominant military power already set the stage for the great tragedies of recent history. At the same time, your guide helps you to consider present-day Berlin’ s successes confronting its dark past and renewing itself as dynamic modern capital known for multiculturalism, tolerance and creativity. You begin at Potsdamer Platz, the business center which replaced the wasteland formerly known as East Germany’ s “Death Strip.” Following the path where the Berlin Wall once stood through to the historic Tiergarten Park, you take in the dramatic new Holocaust Memorial and the Reichstag. While the mysterious fire that damaged the Reichstag in 1933 was used by the Nazis as the pretext to suspend civil liberties and arrest political opponents, the grand glass dome created for the building in 1992 by architect Norman Foster (complete with walkways that look down into the Parliament), provokes a discussion about the symbolic intentions of the cupola as metaphor for Germany’ s reunification, transparency and commitment to democracy. Reaching back further into Berlin’ s past, you follow the footsteps of Napoleon through the Brandenburg Gate, discussing the impact of the French revolution as a catalyst for German nationalism. Traversing the Unter den Linden, Berlin’ s royal boulevard lined with palaces, museums and theaters, pause at the famous equestrian statue of Frederick the Great, for a discussion of Prussia’ s “Poet King” and his role in shaping the militaristic and cultural orientations of the future German Empire. At Bebelplatz, site of the 1933 Nazi book burning, you’ ll learn about Adolf Hitler’ s rise to power and its terrible consequences. As you cross Museum Island (Berlin’ s answer to the Louvre), you will discuss the city’ s 19th century development into a cultural center. Next, Hackescher Markt, a charming pocket of pre-war Berlin, gives you a chance to ramble through a network of hidden courtyards. From here, Alexanderplatz offers a striking counterpoint; once a historic square, the East Germans rebuilt it as in the 1960s as a communist bloc showplace complete with futuristic government buildings, apartment blocks and the iconic TV Tower. You'll confront the longest surviving segment of the Berlin Wall at the East Side Gallery and learn of its 40- year history. Finishing at Checkpoint Charlie, the legendary crossing point from West Berlin to East where, in 1989, thousands of East Germans poured across the border bringing the Cold War to an end, you conclude by discussing the East/West divisions that continue to impact Berlin even as the city evolves new sensibilities and directions.

What people are saying about Holocaust Memorial

I liked that very much! I live in Berlin for many years, but work and children took up a lot of my time. Today we decided with colleagues to move something together and to experience something new. The unusual format of CityVoice has aroused our interest. How great it is to see the well-known city and people in a new light! We laughed so much at the funny stories, danced and sang along with the great track. That was just great! I can only recommend to everyone.

This is a great tour! We were there once in the summer and we really liked it. This time we had relatives visiting and wanted to show them Berlin. We immediately thought of CityVoice. You can see the sights and listen to music. You move at a comfortable pace, like a mobile concert! We were all very happy. Many thanks to the organizers!

Never expected an immersion city tour can be that tempting and captivating. Very unusual experience with great dosing of culture and history. Should say I also liked the guide very much.

The tour with Dr. Martin Sauter was great and very individual! We were the first guests since Corona and the city is still pretty empty.

Great city tour, where you get to see more than just the well-known buildings. Our guide was very reliable and super nice.
