Berlin in a Day Tour

Only in Berlin for one day and you want to see as much as you can? Let us take you on our 6 hour Berlin in a Day walking tour through the history-rich Berlin.  Our guides will take you on a journey through Berlin’s early beginnings, the Holy Roman Empire, Prussia, the formation of Germany as one unified nation, the roaring 20′s, the rise of the Third Reich, through the years of division and reunification of the city. We like you to explore how Berlin reinvents itself every day, how it attracts people from all over the world, and how Berlin is simply different – it’s fun, creative and conventional, and it’s filled with lots of history, art and architecture.

This tour combines aspects of many of our shorter tours that focus on one theme or one neighborhood.  This tour is a great option for those short on time or for those you want to get a full general overview of Berlin, see what might interest them to explore further on their own.  It’s also a great way to learn to master the very confusion Berlin networks of U-Bahn, S-Bahn, Tram and Bus.  You will learn about the history and significance of the mighty mass transit system.

*This tour makes use of Berlin’s public transportation several times during the tour.  Be sure to have an AB day pass (AB Tageskarte).
