Itinerary

Explore the streets of historic West Berlin, still one of the most vibrant and popular areas of one of the most thrilling cities in the world. The live-streamed tour will take you on an exciting adventure featuring key historic locations and events. From Berlin's glamorous take on the Roaring 20s, to the horrific Night of Broken Glass, you will learn about Berlin's colourful, yet often tragic history. You will witness the physical legacy of the bombing of Berlin during WWII, and the gradual rebirth of West Berlin into an epicentre of culture and leisure during the Cold War. Admire the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, still riddled with bullet holes and scarred by bomb damage, to this day a symbol of the unspeakable pain and suffering caused by war. See KaDeWe - the second largest department store in Europe - itself a survivor of an Allied bomber plane crash. Re-opened in 1950 as a symbol of West Germany's economic revival, the KaDeWe still boasts 50,000 visitors per day. 

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.
