Berlin Cathedral Tour - The Choice for First Time Visitors

SightRunning along the River Spree to the Berlin Cathedral in the Old Town of Berlin

The tour orientation follows the course of the River Spree between the Brandenburg Gate and Berlin's historic core. Enjoy the sights which are lined up like pearls on a string along the riverside. Except of the German Chancellery and Reichstag building the attractions you'll see like Brandenburg Gate, Museum Island and Unter den Linden among others are located in the former East Berlin. More tour details

On this city tour you'll visit the central Berlin Mitte district with some of the most important touristic sites of Berlin, like the Museum Island - UNESCO world heritage, the Berlin Cathedral and surrounding old town attractions, Friedrichstraße - Berlin's major culture and shopping street, "Palace of Tears" - border crossing station during the Berlin Wall and last but not least "Unter den Linden" - the boulevard runs east–west from the site of the former royal palace to Pariser Platz and Brandenburg Gate. Along this famous avenue the sight-run will take you past many of Berlin's grand buildings like the Berlin State Opera, Bebelplatz - known as the site of the infamous Nazi book burning ceremony and the Humboldt University of Berlin. Depending on the meeting point, the tour may vary a little.
