Tour Details

Walk through the streets of Berlin and see major World War II sites up close on this Berlin history tour. This Berlin walking tour will teach you all about the city’s past and its relationship with the Jewish people. You and up to 11 other travelers will embark on a journey to visit Humboldt University, the Berlin Wall, and other iconic sites across the city. This is one adventure you don’t want to miss.

Your Berlin sightseeing tour starts at the Palace of Tears, a border crossing station that was the central terminal for travel between East Germany and West Germany. The station gets its name because it was here that East Germans said tearful goodbyes to their family and friends returning to West Germany. From there, you will continue to Humboldt University. One of the city’s oldest schools, Humboldt has produced dozens of Nobel Prize winners, including physicist Albert Einstein. Your tour then takes you to Museum Island, home to five state museums, which are Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Bode Museum, and Pergamon Museum.

As you make your way around the city on this Berlin tour, your guide will share with you fascinating anecdotes about each of these locations. At the New Synagogue, which serves as the city’s main synagogue for Berlin's Jewish residents, you will hear about the “Night of Broken Glass," also known as Kristallnacht. Over the course of two days, Nazi authorities attacked Jewish neighborhoods and smashed the windows of storefronts and synagogues, leaving glass all over the ground.

On a lighter note, you will also visit a local family-run bakery to sample Berliners, a popular local donut that lacks a center hole. Next, you’ll follow your local guide through the hidden backstreets of Berlin and get a glimpse into the backyards of Old Berlin’s traditional tenement houses, where thousands of workers once lived under extremely trying conditions. Your Berlin tour finishes with a stop at the former site of the Berlin Wall, the famous boundary that separated West Berlin and East Berlin and East Germany until 1990. To see firsthand how Berlin has transformed over the decades, book your tour today.
