Sightseeing tours in Berlin – Experience the most exciting capital of Europe
Berlin was and is a center of German and European history. Whether in the Kaiser era, the Golden Twenties, National Socialism, the Cold War with its division, and finally the reunification: Berlin has always been at the center of world events. Especially Berlin Mitte as an open-air museum of the 20th century provides many scenes of historical events. But at the same time Berlin is a young, modern city, a city that is constantly changing. Experiencing Berlin on a city tour therefore means feeling the past, present and future at the same time!
City tour with pictures and films
Berlin has the history – we have the pictures! This is what makes our multimedia Berlin sightseeing tour so vivid. See for example at the Brandenburg Gate, how the wall falls on 09.11.1989, or at Checkpoint Charlie, how Russian and American tanks almost trigger the Third World War. Pictures that have gone around the world, but once again give you goose bumps at their original location. Our fascinating film and image documents come from numerous archives, public and private. Cut together to short video clips, they always allow a journey back into the eventful past of the city. At the original locations, the most important sights of Berlin, the film clips are played during our city tour and commented live by our personal tour guides. Seeing this on the monitors in our bus, the immediate connection between the city today and the past makes our sightseeing tour a unique experience.
City tour with special buses
To make our multimedia tour a special visual experience, we have upgraded the buses for our tours with the latest video technology. All buses have large 19-inch flat screens monitors and a unique infotainment system. The number exact of monitors depends on the size of the bus. Depending on the number of participants, we use small, medium or large buses to offer you maximum comfort.
No other bus company in Berlin has comparable video and sound systems.
The most important sights
On our two-hour city tour we visit the most important sights of Berlin. These places stand for the city’s eventful history over the last few hundred years: The Brandenburg Gate, symbol of division and reunification, the Reichstag, seat of the German Bundestag, the Prussian splendid boulevard Unter den Linden, the large re-construction site of the city castle, buzzing Alexanderplatz, the socialist boulevard Karl-Marx-Allee, the former border crossing Checkpoint Charlie, the last remaining large piece of the Berlin Wall in Niederkirchner Straße, the new centre at Potsdamer Platz, the embassy quarter in Tiergartenstraße, the Victory Column, Bellevue Palace the seat of the Federal President, as well as the government quarter with the Federal Chancellery – are only the most important stops on our tour.
Exits and extras on the mutimedia tour
On every city tour there should be at least one exit, preferably at a central sight such as the Brandenburg Gate or the East-Side Gallery. Private groups can arrange these exits anywhere and in advance. Additionally, each tour can be enhanced even more: How about a glass of Prosecco and a view of the city from a panoramic point at the same time? Or a Currywurst sausage at a typical snack bar? We can also include visits, for example of the television tower or the Berlin Cathedral.
Actors can also perform during the tour: so the Golden Twenties or the Cold War can be experienced in a completely different way!
City tour in different languages
Our city tours are always commented live by our guides, who speak about the city and our film clips fluidly. This is possible many languages and we mainly work with native speakers of that language. Currently (as of 2020) we can offer the following languages: German, English, Spanish, Italian, French, Portuguese, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Russian, Chinese and Japanese.
