DAY LOCATION(S) HOTEL MEALS DESCRIPTION
Day 1
Berlin, Germany
None None

Guided tour: Best of Berlin & 25 years after the fall of the wall


Enjoy a four hours sightseeing tour by bus along most of Berlin’s main highlights like Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag, Gendarmenmarkt with the German and the French Dome, East Side Gallery, Checkpoint Charlie, Berlin Cathedral etc. After getting a general overview of the city and the history about the Berlin Wall the tour will lead to the Restaurant Rio Grande directly at the bank of river Spree opposite of East Side Gallery.


eTrike Tour along the Wall Trail


With the guided eTrike tour you discover the Berlin Wall.

A new chapter in electric mobility: three wheels, a solid platform for the feet and a stable handlebar. You touch the throttle and the e-Lephant starts gently and quietly humming in motion. Without physical exertion you speed up to 25 kilometres per hour. So you see a lot in a short time. On particularly exiting places we stop for a brief explanation.

Day 2
Berlin, Germany
None None

Guided tour through the new exhibition “Everyday Life in the GDR”


Exhibits, documents, film and audio recordings are displayed over 600 square meters, all addressing the subject of the cultural history of the GDR.


asisi Panometer ‘The Wall’ at Checkpoint Charlie


Adegar Asisi’s Panorama of divided Berlin portrays an artistically compacted view of the days of the Cold War.  Here is presented the everyday life and set against the backdrop of the Berlin Wall, on a fictitious autumn day in the 1980’s. The panorama shows how banal the everyday normality of the divided city was, yet at the same time tinged with a subtle cruelty.

Day 3
Leipzig, Germany
None None

Transfer to Leipzig with short stop at the Glienicke Bridge– The ‘Bridge of Spies’


The Glienicke Bridge was a restricted border crossing between the Soviet and American sector which was used for the exchange of captured spies during the Cold War. Journalists called it the ‘Bridge of Spies’.

Excellent guide and driver

By: Tom


Reviewed on: 23 Jan 2018

The guide was a former West Berlin native and spoke perfect English (well, the Queen's English anyway). He was knowledgeable, informative, and interesting. Our driver also spoke English and had grown up in East Berlin. He told us a bit of his story growing up. They were an excellent team and we really enjoyed our tours with them.
