City tour in Berlin


Place of interest: Molecule Man by Jonathan Borofsky

Berlin is subject to constant change like no other city in Germany. Many parts of the city are characterised by renewal as well as efforts to preserve and remember. In addition to monuments of the past and symbols of the present, the metropolis, itself often enough the subject of art and literature, offers lively culture, a multicultural society and at the same time the famous typical Berlin character, which seems to be above all change. Get an overview of the countless sights that the city on the Spree has to offer while sightseeing, or choose one of our city tours as an introduction to your city trip to Berlin – and explore the different Berlin districts, their special features and history!

Sights in Berlin

The Brandenburg Gate, the television tower, the Reichstag – the list of sights in Berlin is long. When visiting the capital, it can be difficult not to get lost in the sea of possibilities. The remains of the Berlin Wall are a very special and unique sight. They symbolise the division and reunification of Germany like no other monument. On the longest remaining section, artists have captured the feelings, hopes and political mood of the time in around 100 paintings after reunification. The East Side Gallery is a permanent and free open-air gallery and absolutely worth seeing!

Berlin Cathedral is a particularly impressive sight. The Protestant church in the Mitte district was built at the end of the 19th century in the neo-renaissance and neo-baroque style. It is the largest Protestant church in Germany in terms of area and was modelled on St. Peter’s Basilica. For exceptional views, it is worth climbing up to the dome of the cathedral: after climbing 270 steps, you can enjoy a panoramic view over the centre of Berlin from a height of 50 metres.

The “Alex”, as Alexanderplatz is usually called by Berliners, is one of the most famous squares in the capital – and the largest! The Alex has an eventful history behind it: until the 1950s it was a parade and drill ground for the military, then it became a transport hub. One of the sights on the square is the World Time Clock, which is reminiscent of GDR times and is now used as a popular meeting place. Practical for sightseeing: many other sights are within walking distance of Alexanderplatz!

Tips for special experiences in Berlin

For rainy days and art and culture lovers, a visit to Museum Island is our tip and highly recommended. You can spend countless hours in the Altes Museum, Neues Museum, Alte Nationalgalerie, Bode-Museum and Pergamonmuseum. The museums also offer numerous interesting and entertaining events – there is always something going on on Museum Island and something for every interest.

No longer an insider tip but absolutely worth seeing: the former Berlin border crossing at Checkpoint Charlie. Between 1961 and 1990, it connected the Soviet sector with the US sector – and thus East Berlin with West Berlin.

The checkpoint was the scene of spectacular escape attempts from what was then East Berlin, some of which ended fatally. For more information about Checkpoint Charlie, it is worth visiting the Wall Museum in the immediate vicinity. Here you can learn about the experiences of GDR refugees and the history of the Wall in a vivid way – a tip for any visit to Berlin!

For those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a while, we recommend the Botanical Garden. It is one of the largest botanical gardens in Germany and belongs to the Free University of Berlin. This green oasis in the centre of Berlin invites you to marvel and relax in a variety of themed areas such as the Fragrance and Touch Garden, the Medicinal Garden and various greenhouses.
