Great Moments in Aviation: 5-Hour Tour in Berlin

5. Great Moments in Aviation: 5-Hour Tour in Berlin

The German capital has always attracted aviation pioneers and companies such as Otto Lilienthal, Hans Grade, Manfred von Richthofen, Melli Beese, Rumpler, Fokker, and Lufthansa, which was founded in Hotel Kaiserhof in 1926. Start the tour at Köpenicker Straße 113, where Dampfkessel- und Maschinenfabrik Otto Lilienthal was located. Lilienthal is known as an aviation pioneer but he was above all an entrepreneur and engineer, a true Jack of all trades. On the former Johannisthal Airfield you will find widely scattered buildings from different development periods of the area, all with an interesting story to tell. All major aircraft manufacturers were represented by their companies here but it was the Wright brothers who first settled here in 1910. The German Laboratory for Aviation made Johannisthal a location for science – the large wind tunnel, the Trudelturm, and the engine dynamometer are all from the 1930s. The tour continues to the aerodrome in Potsdam, where you will discover the period of aviation history before the First World War, when Zeppelins were still superior to aircraft. Admire the huge entrance gate from 1910, which was used by passengers who had booked a Zeppelin flight. You will then explore the remains of the military air base in Döberitz. Here the “Red Baron” Manfred von Richthofen, Max Immelmann, and Oswald Boelke learned their craft. A technology center was also located here, which held the world’s first flight simulator and where the synchronization of the gunner for vehicle-mounted machine guns and propellers was developed. The final stop on the way back to Berlin is Staaken Airfield, which began as an airship port in 1915 only to experience an eventful history. There are still buildings from all periods that now partly stand in an industrial park: the old gas station, the main entrance to the air base, Lufthansa hangars, Heinkel Tower, and the New Jerusalem settlement.

Discover the traces of Swiss inventiveness that have significantly influenced Berlin’s cultural history. Start the tour at the Swiss Embassy, which has remained almost unscathed from the bombing raids during the Second World War. Learn more about the history of Johan Josty, who moved from Oberengadin to Berlin at the end of the 18th century and became the first Swiss confectioner of the city. His brother Daniel also left a Swiss mark on Berlin and founded Berliner Weiße – his brewery still stands today in Berlin-Mitte. Continue on to Gendarmenmarkt, one of the most beautiful squares in Berlin. Here you can also see Swiss elements – until 1738 the Swiss cemetery was located where the imposing German Cathedral stands today. You will then head towards Potsdam. See the Swiss houses from the 1860s shortly before reaching the Glienicke Bridge. They were an expression of the spirit at that time for a natural and social way of life. The highlight of the tour is the Swiss colonists’ village of Nattwerder, which was settled by 14 families from Berlin in 1685. The church from 1690 is the oldest in Potsdam. Grave stones mark the Dortschy, Kiener, Schweingruber, Garmatter, and Mauerhof families. The main highlights of a general tour of Berlin and Potsdam are also included in this tour.

What people are saying about Brandenburg

a great way to get out of the city

This was a great way of getting out of Berlin city center to see the somewhat less accessible sights of Berlin. Johannes was very knowledgeable about the sights and history of the area and monarchy and was able to explain history (he also had a book full of historical pictures to show!). He was also happy to adapt the tour to suit our preferences of what we wanted to get out of it and was very accommodating.

This day tour can only be recommended to everyone. You are shown a lot and there is also a lot of information about it. A big thank you to Mr. Westerkamp who gave us a very nice trip. We would make such a booking again and again.

Highly recommended

We had a wonderful day with Johannes who picked us up from our hotel, as arranged, and drove us to Potsdam. He took us to all the major sites, sharing his formidable knowledge along the way. He was punctual, helpful & humorous.

Fantastic tour and very knowledgeable guide. Johannes customized the tour to our interests and had an amazing depth of knowledge on Potsdam and the surrounding area. Highly recommend taking this tour!

Wonderful.

Fantastic. Wonderful guide. Very happy. Fantastic day.
