Join us on the ultimate Berlin Tour! Combine world culture and local history in this 6h Semi-Private Combo Tour of the Neues & Pergamon Museums followed by our essential Berlin History Walk. Our passionate guide will lead you through all main highlights in the most culturally renowned museums in the country and pairing that with the city’s eclectic history including Hitler’s bunker and Jewish Memorial.
Begin your tour at the Neues Museum where you will explore the impressive collection of the world’s most enchanting ancient civilization – Egypt. Your guide will lead you through Egypt’s millennia-old evolution, explaining how the civilization transformed over time, whilst you observe the countless sculptures, impressive artifacts and death rituals. You’ll come face to face with the exquisite Queen Nefertiti, Egypt’s most famous leading lady. Her bust is the museum’s prized possession. From there, follow your guide to enter the Pergamonmuseum and wander through the restored facades, mosaics, sculptures and tiled floors. In the Greek and Roman section you’ll see the famous Market Gate of Miletus dating back to the Romans.
Both these museums will send you on a tour around the ancient world without having to step a foot off Museum Island.
After a well deserved lunch break, you’ll dive into an exciting city walk. Starting from Museum Island, one of the world’s most unique locations, your guide will take you on a whirlwind journey all the way to The Brandenburg Gate.
Berlin has a history like no other city. From its thriving days as the capital of the Prussian Empire to its division following the devastation of the Second World War, this city has seen it all. Beyond just viewing the city’s most iconic architecture, you’ll be thrown into the world of the Kaisers, come face-to-face with Hitler’s rise to power and stand in the exact location that marked a divided Berlin. Even more exciting, your guides will share their insider tips and favorite places, so that by the end of this tour you will be all set to handle Berlin on your own.
No other tour will cover this much terrain and history and our professional guides will ensure this is the best experience you and your family have during your trip!
