Walking tours are a firm favorite of ours, and no exception on this day to Berlin. Walking tours are my favorite way of seeing cities, as you can have a local guide. Guided walking tours may have been around for sometime, but they certainly show no sign of disappearing from soon. You can either take a walking tour that covers the most important highlights in one hour or you can do a 4-hour tour to see more of the main attractions.
With groups of 10 people or fewer, these walking tours will ensure you have access to the guide as you make stops at Reichstag, the Berliner Dom, Checkpoint Charlie, and various World War II places of battle. The itinerary is up to each guide, so you never know where she or he might take you. They also offer free bike tours every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 11 am. Offering up to 40 different themed tours, GuruWalk covers the city of Berlin quite thoroughly. There are various walking tours on the Berlin Wall, the Third Reich, the Cold War, the Jewish quarter, alternative Berlin, and the city’s main highlights, among others.
Another way to tour the center of Berlin is on a guided bike tour. This city lends itself so well that in recent years, guided tours through Berlin’s center have been organized that include bike rentals. These tours are for small groups and last between 3-4 hours. They can be offered in English or Spanish. Guided tours of Berlin are not all History. You must enjoy the city. What better way to do that than with a traditional German snack, and three different types of beer? This Berlin beer tour is a great way to learn more about Germany’s history and taste the beer.
