Dynamic, cosmopolitan and just a little bit decadent, Berlin is one of the fastest changing cities in Europe.
We’ll talk you through its remarkable and often troubled history and show you the vibrant, creative Berlin of today.
We start at the magnificent Reichstag and talk about its war torn history - and its exciting modern incarnation.
We then direct you round to the Brandenburg Gate where we explain not only what you’re looking at but we also put this historic symbol of Germany into context. Afterwards, we pay a visit to the new Holocaust Memorial, explain the thinking behind it - and reveal why it's proved to be so controversial.
We then wander down Unter den Linden, hear about what the name means and take a short detour down to Checkpoint Charlie. Then we take in the impressive architecture of Bebelplatz but also talk about the most shameful episode in the square’s history – and the point out the simple but moving memorial to that awful event which so many visitors miss.
After the glorious Berlin cathedral we finally we arrive at the TV Tower and we’ll tell you why it was such an embarrassment to the Communist regime which built it.
We’ll also tell you about the coolest bars, restaurants and shops and guide show how the past, present and future converge and sometimes clash in the Berlin of the 21st century.
