Explore the classical squares and spacious boulevards of Berlin’s historic central Mitte district on foot. Travel slow and feast on the sights, sounds, and stories of a thousand years of fascinating history – all while digesting the city at a leisurely pace.

Orientate yourself within the living museum of Berlin’s landmarks and historic locations – from the UNESCO Heritage to the back alleys off the beaten path – as we meander with ample time to pause, contemplate, and absorb the German capital in all its tragedy & glory.


With over 17 years experience offering unique historical adventures in Berlin and the surrounding area, our tours are educational, entertaining, and unlike any stuffy academic-led tour you’ve been on before. We believe history is best experienced and understood outside the classroom and should be available for everyone interpid enough to travel.


  • the Brandenburg Gate
  • the Reichstag
  • the Holocaust Memorial
  • the site of Adolf Hitler’s Führerbunker
  • the former Nazi Airforce Ministry
  • the former SS/Gestapo Headquarters
  • the Topography of Terror museum…and much more...


Finding your feet in a foreign city can be as daunting as it is thrilling. With each junction the option between something authentic and undiscovered, and, well, a wrong turn. 

I’m here to share my expert knowledge of Berlin with you; the sights, the stories, and the secrets of the city that only reveal themselves either by chance or following years of dedicated pursuit.

All packed into one incredible trip – a Berlin Highlights tour that covers almost 1,000 years of history of the German capital – a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Certainly, it was far from evident from its humble beginnings – as a minor fishing village settled in an unforgiving backwater – that Berlin was destined for the world stage. The catastrophic events of the 20th century that have come to be so closely associated with the peaceful present-day German capital seem unbelievably distant from its time as part of the remote ‘Sandbox of the Holy Roman Empire’.

However, to remove Berlin now from the European story would leave many questions unanswerable; eras have begun and ended here; events served as catalysts to the great turning points in history.

Germany’s doomed involvement in the First World War; the city’s status as the nerve centre of Hitler’s Third Reich; Berlin carved up and occupied on the frontline of the Cold War conflict; the rise and fall of the Berlin Wall; and the reunification of Germany with Berlin as the country’s capital.

Within the six hours of this Berlin History tour, you will discover the city’s major and many minor sights – focusing on the central historic Mitte district and the five grand squares – the Lustgarten, Bebelplatz, Gendarmenmarkt, Wilhelmplatz & Pariser Platz – that dominate the area. 

Not only will you leave well-versed in the facts & figures of Berlin’s fascinating past but also confident and capable of further exploring the city’s present.
