Berlin: The Original Free Historical Walking Tour

Explore the often troubled history of Berlin on a free walking tour, and see sites from the days of the Third Reich, the split between East and West, and the Reunification and hopes for the future.

The free tour is the perfect way to familiarize yourself with the German capital, and takes in monuments such as the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, and Checkpoint Charlie. Along the way, you will learn the story of Berlin, and discover what it’s like to live there today.

Learn about Berlin’s humble beginnings as a small fishing village, to the strength of the Prussian Empire, through the dark Nazi era, and freedom from Soviet Rule. Pay your respects at the Holocaust Memorial, and see the site of the infamous Nazi book burnings.

You will discover where the Luftwaffe HQ was located, and hear stories about how Checkpoint Charlie became the symbol of the Cold War. Walk down the beautiful Unter Den Linden boulevard to the Humboldt University, and much more.

The exact route of each tour varies depending on your guide and weather conditions, but all explore the historic Mitte district, the first and most central borough of Berlin.

We enjoyed this walking tour immensely. Our guide Danielle was very knowledgeable, insightful and extremely engaging. We could have walked with him all day. We loved it so much, we are taking another different tour with him today.

Too long, difficult to hear the guide
The tour was supposed to be 2.5h. I booked with this company specifically as most tours in Berlin are 3h, and I wanted a shorter tour; however, the tour took over 4h. My friends and I left after 4h, and the tour was still ongoing. We had had enough and were hungry/tired by 4h of walking. The tour guide mumbled and spoke quietly which was difficult to hear, especially around the noisy streets. I would book with a different company or do a biking tour since everything in Berlin is somewhat far to walk to (about 15-20 from site to site). I understand this is a free tour, but my friends and I overheard other free walking tour guides on our walk and they sounded better; speaking louder, giving clear information about the sites/history/etc.

Onze gids Mike wist heel veel te vertellen op een boeiende manier, we hebben genoten van elke minuut van deze 4 uur durende wandeling door Oost-Berlijn, het vloog voorbij! Ik kan het iedereen aanraden. (het was de engelse tour).
