Best of Berlin

WHEN & WHERE

One tour, everything you need to know. Pioneered by historian and raconteur Terry Brewer, this full-day circuit is the city’s most comprehensive walking tour. There’s no set routes, no scripts, and no limits. Our guides are given a licence to roam and a remit to show you the absolute best of Berlin – as much as is humanly possible in 6-hours. We don’t believe in compartmentalising Berlin’s complex history into several different tours. We believe in the bigger picture, and we want to help you understand how different periods of Berlin’s past interlink and affect one another. So join us and experience a city caught in the throes of Nazi megalomania, walk through a capital cut in two by the Cold War, marvel at the might of Prussia, explore hidden pathways in the former Jewish quarter, and learn how the traumatic legacy of the 20th century is written into the city’s fabric today.

Remember that every Best of Berlin tour is a little different! You're going to see everything on our Discover Berlin tour plus a whole lot more! That means everything in this list:
