Brandenburg Gate

The Brandenburg Gate is one of the most famous landmarks in Berlin and the only surviving city gate. It used to stand for the separation of the city into East and West. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, it has been the symbol of German unity.

Central Station

With around 300,000 passengers a day, Europe's largest crossing station is not only an architectural showpiece, but also a shopping center and meeting place at the same time.

Holocaust Memorial

The Holocaust memorial commemorates the murdered Jews of Europe during World War II. It consists of 2711 steles and is located on an area of about 19,000 m² south of the Brandenburg Gate.

Federal Chancellery

The Federal Chancellery, the building is also called the washing machine by Berliners, is the seat of the German Federal Chancellor. It belongs to the so-called "Bund des Bunds" and is located in the government district on the edge of the Spreebogenpark.

Soviet memorial

The memorial is located in the Großer Tiergarten. It was built in 1945 to commemorate the fallen Soviet Red Army soldiers.

Bellevue Palace

It was built at the end of the 18th century and used by the Prussian prince August Ferdinand. Bellevue Palace has been the official residence of the Federal President since 1994. It is located on the edge of the Tiergarten, not far from the Federal Chancellery and the German Bundestag.

Victory column

The 69 meter high column is one of the most famous landmarks in Berlin and cannot be overlooked in the center of Straße des 17. Juni. Completed in 1873, it was moved to its current location in 1939. It takes 285 steps to see Berlin's largest park, the Tiergarten, from above.

Checkpoint Charlie

The former border crossing Checkpoint Charlie is one of the most important sights in Berlin. Its name derives from the International Spelling Alphabet (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie).

Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

The Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church is an exciting ensemble consisting of the ruins of the church destroyed in the war and a modern church building. It stands as a memorial for peace and reconciliation on Breitscheidtplatz.

Berlin Zoo

In the oldest zoo in Germany, over 22,200 animals from around 1,400 species can be seen on an area of 33 hectares. This makes the Berlin Zoo the most species-rich in the world. Right next to the zoo you will also find the Berlin Aquarium.

Reichstag building

The Reichstag is the lynchpin of German politics – this is where parliament sits and deliberates. High up from the glass dome you have a fantastic panoramic view.

Shopping-Mile Ku'damm

Shopaholics will be happy on Kurfürstendamm or Ku'damm. Here you will find the well-known fashion chains and the finest boutiques. It is 3.5km long and runs from Rathenauplatz in Grunewald to Breitscheidplatz in Charlottenburg.

Potsdamer Platz

Potsdamer Platz offers a very special district with its own building ensemble consisting of high-rise buildings and futuristic-looking new buildings.

Hackesche Höfe

The Hackesche Höfe are located in the historic Scheunenviertel in Berlin-Mitte. They form the largest closed courtyard area in Germany and have been under monument protection since 1972. Let yourself be impressed by the Art Nouveau facade and browse through the numerous shops.

Red Town Hall

The Red Town Hall is not only the seat of Berlin's mayor, but also one of the city's most famous landmarks.

Bikini Berlin

The Bikini-Haus was opened in 1957 and was a center for Berlin chic. It got its name because of the special architecture and an open colonnade in the middle. After a renovation, it was reopened in 2014 as a concept mall.

Kaufhaus des Westens

The KaDeWe is the most famous department store in Germany. Here you can shop in the upscale segment or let yourself be pampered with culinary delights in the restaurant.

Museum Island

On the Museum Island you will find an incomparable building ensemble consisting of five museums: the Old Museum, the New Museum, the old National Gallery, the Bode Museum and the Pergamon Museum.

Wall Museum

The Wall Museum at Checkpoint Charlie is a private museum with an exhibition about the Berlin Wall.


If you want to relax a little after a visit to Museum Island, you've come to the right place on the inviting green area.


The Gendarmenmarkt enjoys the reputation as the most beautiful square in all of Berlin. Surrounded by the French and German Cathedrals, the Konzerthaus Berlin is located in the middle. The Schiller monument is located directly in front of the concert hall.


Named after Tsar Alexander I, Alexanderplatz is not only one of the most important transport hubs in the city, you can also reach many sights from here, such as the television tower. It is also a transfer point between our two tours.

TV Tower

At 368 meters, the Berlin TV Tower is the tallest building in Germany. The viewing platform at a height of 203 meters offers you a unique view of Berlin.

World Clock

The world clock on Alexanderplatz was built in 1969, is 10m high, weighs 16 tons and shows you 146 cities.

East Side Gallery

The East Side Gallery is a memorial, a permanent open-air gallery that holds the longest surviving section of the Berlin Wall. One of the most famous graffiti is the work of art "The Fraternal Kiss" created by Dmitri Vrubel in 1990.


When it comes to Berlin bridges, the Oberbaum Bridge is probably one of the most famous in the city. Since 1896 it has connected the Berlin district of Kreuzberg with Friedrichshain across the Spree.

Schloss Charlottenburg

Schloss Charlottenburg ist das größte und prachtvollste Schloss in Berlin. Es wurde ursprünglich als Sommerschloss für Königin Sophie Charlotte, die erste Königin in Preußen, errichtet.
