We were lucky to have a history buff from New York, sorry I forgot his name. The trip started at Alexanderplatz and finished at the Brandenburg gate. We saw many of the Berlin "musts " with a behind the facts commentary really giving us a...More
She went in to way too much detail so by the end of the tour we had no idea of how the city fits together, best places to go to, easiest way to get about etc. I love history, but not in that level of...More
We did the Berlin free walking tour with Ben, an excellent guide. His accent was easy to understand altough English isn’t our mothertongue. We’re impressed by his commitment with the tour, focussing in explaining interesting things instead of puking dates and wide-known names. We spent...More
I'd recommend this as the first thing people do once they arrive in Berlin. The tour takes you to all the main attractions in Berlin. Our tour guide, Theo Legget, was great. He explained and described so much of the city that we otherwise wouldn't...More
We booked the Sachsenhausen camp tour on a Sunday and we were lucky to have Susan Grouchy as our guide. She accompanied us all the way from Berlin to Oranienburg and kept everyone in good humour. She has a double masters degree and is an...More
My friend suggested we try this free tour. We didn't have any plans set for the day and three hours seemed generous so we were game for it. What we received in terms of information (and great exercise) from our guide Martin was far more...More
The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighbourhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
