Discover the locals-only side of Germany’s capital on a Berlin walking tour of both notable monuments and hidden city gems. Listen to an insider’s perspective as you view World War II sites, walk by Cold War landmarks, and get a glimpse of life in modern Berlin.
Meet up with your guide and small group and visit the Palace of Tears, a former Cold War border crossing between East and West Berlin. Next, see the harrowing sites where Jewish children were either rescued or taken to concentration camps.
Continue on and explore Humboldt University and explore contemporary Berlin as you learn about current student life. Even this impressive campus has a link to the past as the site of the 1933 Nazi book burning. Afterwards, amble by Museum Island, a UNESCO World Heritage site, in the Jewish Quarter. View the 19th-century New Synagogue and learn about the tragic history of Berlin's Jewish population.
Now it's time for a sweet treat at one of the oldest city bakeries. The aroma of pastries fills the air as you bite into a Berliner, a traditional German snack similar to a doughnut. Navigate through the backstreets past old tenement houses to reach the Berlin Wall, the final stop of the tour. A symbol of the Cold War and the city's division, this graffitied concrete wall now serves as an infamous artifact.
