Itinerary

There is no better location to see the transition of Berlin’s history than at Potsdamer Platz. From a transportation hub to entertainment metropolis in the roaring 1920s, it is difficult to imagine that for 28 years this cabaret capital belonged to the desolate death strip that bordered the Berlin Wall. Home to the first traffic light system on the continent and falling directly between the Soviet, American and British sectors during the Cold War, Potsdamer Platz is packed with history. Check out the Sony Centre modelled on Mount Fuji or delve into the cultural delights of the renowned Philharmonic and Culture Forum. Stop by the Hanse Recording Studios where the legendary David Bowie recorded his album “Heroes” and enjoy the impressive architecture that once again surrounds this incredibly historical space.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Berlin’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Berlin. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together. With your experienced guide you will see more than just the Berlin of today, you’ll also get a glimpse back in time because each tour is complemented with an excellent selection of multimedia. You will be shown historic photographs and videos to help with explanations, stories and the historical context of Berlin's incredible and turbulent past. You can’t get any closer to history without a time machine!

Our private tours run between 8:00AM and 7:00PM Berlin time. Please send us a message if you would like to request a specific date and time.
