Highlights

  • Private guide for a more personalized experience
  • Private tour is operated with just your party and a guide/driver
  • Flexibility to customize your itinerary to your own preferences
  • Choice of morning or afternoon departure

Start your tour at a time that suits you best – morning or afternoon – and then head out from your Berlin hotel with your guide, on foot or by bike. Your itinerary is flexible and tailored to your specific interests, so if there’s something you want to see more or less of, simply let your guide know!
The city boasts some of the world’s finest, and most intriguing, architecture with many buildings reflecting its rich history. The Communist-era apartment blocks of the east compete for attention with capitalist modern architecture of west Berlin, with each side showcasing their past political ideologies.
Learn about the city’s contentious urban planning schemes while visiting Friedrichstrasse -- one of Berlin’s busiest shopping streets -- and then head across town to see modernist masterpieces at the Kulturforum. Admire the center’s collection of cultural buildings and learn about the different artistic concepts that each one represents; the Philharmonic Hall is a perfect example of Expressionist architecture, contrasting against the Italianesque style of St Matthäus Church.
Take a look at the grandiose designs of Schinkel’s Altes Museum and Stüler's Neues Museum, and then explore Gendarmenmarkt where Berlin’s famous architectural trio – Deutscher Dom, Französischer Dom and Schinkel’s Konzerthaus – is found. Learn about the Bahaus style of architecture that was driven out of Berlin by the Nazis (who considered it too internationalist) and hear about the famous architects who brought the style into the German mainstream, like Gropius, Medelssohn and Poelzig.
After four hours of exploring Berlin with your private guide, seeing buildings imprinted by history, your tour finishes back at your hotel.
