Description

Berlin has fast become a modern metropolis, but nestled in the heart of the city you can still discover traces of royalty. This virtual exploration of the beautiful Gendarmenmarkt and Bebelplatz squares will transport you to the ornate wonders of Prussian architecture, neoclassical columns and magnificent cathedrals all from the comfort of your own living room. Travel back to the 18th century and the time of Friedrich the Great, learn why Berlin has a French cathedral and stop at the renowned Humboldt University where Einstein once taught. Packed with history, including the site of former Nazi book burning in 1933, this contrast of beauty and history will leave you wanting more.

This is a private live virtual tour. Our professional, local guide will be showing you Berlin’s most fascinating sights in real time, directly from the streets of Berlin. You will be connected via video call and you can then explore the city together.
