Berlin City Tour

Once you arrive in Berlin, your first stop will be the Charlottenburg Palace located in the western district of Charlottenburg.

After meeting the guide here the tour continues through the western half of the city driving down the beautiful Kurfürstendamm stopping for a photo opportunity at the bombed out Kaiser William Memorial Church. The tour then continues through the Central Park of Berlin, the Tiergarten passing the towering Victory Column and jumping out of the bus again at the German Parliament, the Reichstag.

From here you will get a chance to stretch your legs as you walk the few hundred meters through the Brandenburg Gate into Paris Square. After Paris square you will walk through the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and then to the site of Hitler’s Bunker before getting back on the bus.

Once back on the bus the next stop is the architecturally amazing Potsdamer Platz and then onto the former site of the SS and Gestapo Headquarters which is now a museum called the Topography of Terror. This is coincidentally also the first time you will see a stretch of the Berlin wall in its original position so you will once again get a chance to get off the bus and take some photos. The infamous Checkpoint Charlie is the next stop on the tour and after that a lunch break can be taken if so desired.

The Hofbrauhaus is typically associated more with Munich but the food and beer here is a national treasure which is why they opened a restaurant here in Berlin a couple of years ago. After lunch the tour heads up to the historic heart of Berlin passing the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt Square and the Book Burning Square before landing on the UNESCO World Heritage Site Museum Island and Berlin's five most famous museums.

Depending on how much time is left the tour can continue on to the East Side Gallery and/or the former Jewish Quarter of town which has now become the art district of Berlin. If desired by the majority, there might also be some free time for the group at the biggest department store in Europe - KaDeWe.

After the sightseeing, lunch and free time, the bus will bring you back to your ship!
