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.

Amazing historical background that brought the intensity to life
Aaron was an AMAZING guide that made a sorrowful painful history of the city come to life in a way that was very informative and interesting. I tiled him more that I normally leave on free walking tours because I really did think he was great!

Informative, thorough, insightful
Guide was informative, interesting, and funny. Since the tour was only 3 hours it wasn't possible to go into great detail on every aspect of Berlin, but it was as thorough as could reasonably be expected. The guide's personal opinions and insights were a welcome addition.

Very nice tour!
Our guide was lovely - I think her name is Heidi, she's Australian. She led us through the main attractions, places and buildings of Berlin, and she explained us everything about them. The tour lasted 3hours more or less, and it was worthy. Very nice, recommended!

Excellente visite guidée
Guide australien très sympathique passionné par Berlin et son histoire. Beaucoup d'informations intéressantes à condition de bien maitriser l'anglais. Circuit bien tracé qui nous fait passer par les points clés du centre ville.

worth going
The weather was really awful! However, our guide Aaron didn't lose enthusiasm and brilliantly told us about city sights, while jumping over paddles with us and seeking shelters to hide from the snow on the way=)

Es un tour muy completo, lleno de curiosidades y historia.
Se trata de un recorrido por las zonas mas importantes de la ciudad. La guia te explica la historia de la ciudad y otras curiosidades o datos interesantes que te hacen entender la evolucion de berlin al largo del tiempo. Gracias a sus explicaciones ( el paso del muro, los semaforos, la cicatriz... ) nos fijamos en los pequeños detalles que se esconden. Son guias muy agradables y muy dispuestos a ayudar o aconsejar sobre que visitar o a que lugares ir.

The guide didn't turn up...bad weather
Its difficult to write a review about my experience as the guide didn't even show up. The weather was awful that day so I do understand why, however, there were a good few people waiting at the hostel so it would have been nice if your representative would have called the receptionist at the hostel a little earlier then the 45 minutes later informing her that the walking tour had been cancelled.
