Tours with a vehicle

Except for the usual combination of walking and public transportation, our tours can also be done with a vehicle and a professional driver. Typically it's a van, but we can also organize a limousine or a bus depending on your requirements.

We would like to mention first that there is, usually, no real need for a vehicle. It is natural for tours done with a vehicle to become less deep than walking tours: While driving from one location to the next, it's hard to pay attention to everything on the way. However, depending on your age, your physical condition and the season/weather, having a vehicle and a chauffeur at your disposal can be useful and recommendable.

In case you choose to have a vehicle and chauffeur, there is no need to design the tour while focusing on a specific geographical area. Therefore, having a vehicle suits well tours that combine various boroughs and topics. If you would like to cover as much as possible on one day, then having a vehicle with a chauffeur is indeed the best way.

We could do, for example, an extensive tour of about six hours, which incorporates all important topics that make our city so fascinating. In such a tour, we will visit all central locations in East and West Berlin, including:

The Parliament & Government District
The famous Kurfürstendamm avenue
Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church – West Berlin’s most known icon
Museum Island
The royal avenue “Unter den Linden”
Gendarmenmarkt with Berlin’s twin churches
Karl Marx avenue with its Stalinist architecture
The Presidential Palace
Potsdamer Platz and its architecture
The "Siegessäule" - Berlin's victory column
And many other sites along the way.

In addition, we will also make stops at the central sites:
Brandenburg Gate
Paris Square
The Wall (the famous "East Side Gallery")
The Holocaust memorial
Checkpoint Charlie
The Reichstag
The last original communist watchtower still standing in the city center
The Book Burning square (with the memorial of the empty library)
The location of Hitler’s bunker
The “New Synagogue”
The Stumbling Stones

This all-in-one itinerary can be made longer or shorter – we can remove or add locations depending on how long the tour should be and how much you’d like us to cover.

We could also have a different itinerary focusing on a particular topic (e. g. Jewish heritage or
Cold War locations). If our tour should focus just on Jewish history, we could cover various sites in both East and West Berlin. There are many Jewish Heritage sites in the city and our selection depends on your preferences as well as on the tour’s length. Our options include:

The “Block of Women” memorial
The Book Burning square with its memorial
The Holocaust memorial
The “New Synagogue”
The Stumbling Stones
Otto Weidt’s workshop for the blind
The “Deserted Room”
The Empty Benches memorial
The memorial for the “Kindertransport”
The “Missing House”
The Bavarian quarter
The Train Wagon memorial in Moabit
The Wall of Mirrors memorial in Steglitz
The train station in Grunewald
Jewish cemeteries (the old one and/or the one at Weißensee)
The House of the Wannsee Conference
The Jewish Museum
