Do you feel like undertaking a journey of discovery into the heart of Germany’s capital city? Any idea where to find a 360m long relief frieze that tells the history of the city? Can you imagine how an 80 tons granite foundling boulder was transported to Berlin 200 years ago, which was then shaped into the city’s largest soup bowl?
Allow our Berlin experts Anna Guchinski and Karl Lehmann to accompany you on your audio-guided walk around Berlin’s historical city centre. Anna is an art historian very fond of pointing out minute details you would otherwise walk past without taking notice. Karl is basically at home on water; having grown up on cargo boats, he now escorts visitors to the city along the Spree river. Occasionally he does go ashore, though. That’s when he and Anna tour together, to accompany you and invite you to make fascinating discoveries in this city.
You can explore 14 different sights of interest between Alexanderplatz and the Hackescher Market Square within 80 minutes, or take time off for a cup of coffee in between and spend an entire afternoon meandering about. The audio-guided tour takes as long as you want it to. You decide your own pace.
The tour highlights:
Church of Mary
The Danse Macabre (a unique wall painting in the front hall of the Church of Mary)
Red Town Hall
City Castle, Palace of the Republic and then what?
Hackescher Market Square
The People’s Theatre
The tour ends at its starting point, Berlin’s Television Tower at Alexanderplatz.
Everything was okay.
Everything worked well. Unfortunately, it was so cold on this day that I listened to the rest of the tour in a café ;-)
a very good alternative to the standard tours
Unfortunately, the mp3 players are very complicated to handle or more useful for long-term usage. But if you have to pause it several times, like it is provided at this tour, they either shut off completely or you miss the right part to start again. The remote control doesn't work without problems as well. All in all that spoils the fun of the tour. But besides that, it was okay with good texts, a very well chosen path which can be walked in about two, three hours.
