Berlin: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour with Live Commentary

1. Berlin: Hop-on Hop-off Bus Tour with Live Commentary

If, for example, you start your tour at Kurfürstendamm, you will pass the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church and reach KaDeWe, one of Europe’s largest shopping centers, through Tauentzienstraße. Next you continue on to Lützowplatz and the embassy district at the Tiergarten and over to the Philarmonic and the West Berlin Kulturforum. The next stop is the historically significant Potsdamer Platz. In the 1930s, it was one of the most public squares in Berlin. After the Second World War, this was no man’s land, where the Berlin Wall divided the city.

Also, the Legoland Discovery Center is on Potsdamer Platz. From there, continue to Berlin’s other important historical sites. In the Niederkirchner Straße you can find the city parliament, the Martin-Gropius-Bau, a museum with changing exhibitions, the Topography of Terror, which exhibits the history of the Nazis and of the Jews’ suffering under the Nazis, as well as the Ministry of Finance, which was once the Nazi Ministry of Aviation.

This used to be the Berlin City Palace. Here you will also have the opportunity to go shopping. The next stop is Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, in front of the Radisson Hotel.

Gute Routen (rot & blau), gute Kommentierung und auch für unsere Kids sehr kurzweilig. Die blaue Rote könnte gerne noch etwas weiter gehen. Hohe Flexibilität beim aus und einsteigen um sich die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten anzusehen. Und davon bietet Berlin sehr viele.

Great tour, live commentary the guide was very polite and friendly. He also answered all questions and provided recommendations as needed. Bang for your buck! Must recommend for all English speaking visitors
