Every new location we discover throughout our tour, helps us recognise and understand the scars that its own past has left in this city, as well as the wonders of its splendid and fascinating present, and even future, that adorn the German capital, making it so special. Because visiting Berlin, with all its squares, monuments, museums, etc., allows you to immerse yourself in the history of Germany, Europe and the World, by simply walking through its streets, led by our expert guides.
The Free Tour Berlin allows you to enjoy a beautiful walk, about three hours long, while visiting squares, streets, and monuments with a rich history, as well as reliving past situations. The first monument we visit on our tour is Brandenburg Gate, a marvellous and stunning construction that once was a symbol of German division. It has been a silent witness to many historic events, from Nazi parades to a Reagan speech in 1987 where he famously said: Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
We learn about the history of the Neptunbrunnen, or Fountain of Neptune, one of Berlin's most beautiful fountains, located in between St. Mary's church and the Rotes Rathaus, the local Town Hall. Next on our route is Berlin's Cathedral, a Baroque-style monument near the river Spree, and the most important protestant church in Berlin.
The tour now leads us to Spree Island, also known as Museum Island due to the five different museums it's home to. The whole complex is a World Heritage Site recognized by UNESCO. The Neue Wache, on Unter den Linden boulevard, still a part of Mitte district, serves as the Central Memorial for all War and Dictatorship Victims, and features the famous sculpture Mother and her dead son.
We then visit Bebelplatz, home to the Old Royal Library and the Opera House, as well as to the infamous Nazi book burnings in 1933. Gendarmenmarkt, is our next destination, surrounded by three stunning monuments: the French Cathedral, the German Cathedral or Neue Kirche, and Schinkel Konzerthaus.
Our guides take us to visit Checkpoint Charlie, the most important border crossing point during the Cold War together with Glienicker Brücke. It divided the West from the East, Capitalism from Communism, Freedom from confinement, until 1989, and today it remains an iconic location.
The Detlev Rohwedder House, the old Nazi Ministry of Aviation, remains intact for us to see at Wilhelmstrasse. Today it serves as home to the Federal Finance Ministry, and still keeps some elements that remind us of its past. Our Free Tour Berlin also takes you to discover the original location of Hitler's old bunker. In sharp contrast, the Holocaust Memorial, honoring the almost six million Jews murdered during the Nazi Holocaust, is a somber but spectacular place. 2711 concrete blocks, each one telling a story, make for a location that perfect for quietly reflecting and contemplating.
Our guides will wait in Brandenburg Gate, in front of USA Embassy.
