First meeting with Berlin

Sightseeing self-guided tour for the first meeting with Berlin

What's tour about

Years ago Berlin stood on the border of two opposing worlds — eastern and western Europe. The Berlin wall that divided the city into two parts has fallen, and today Berlin presents a mosaic of nationalities and cultures.

That city is internationally recognised for many things. It has a fascinating history, some incredible number of attractions and busy life. And if you are here for the first time, surely, you ask the questions: what is the first place to go in Berlin? How to see all the places that I have heard about so many times?

This sightseeing tour will help to visit the lion’s share of iconic sights in the centre of Berlin in one day and get acquainted with interesting details of the city’s history.
