- Justin P, Melbourne
We have hand-picked our favourite central Berlin historical sites with a foodie experience to bring you our exclusive Berlin Highlights Tour.
As a tourist or newbie in Berlin, although touristic, the main sites are very important to a cities culture - and this no where this is more relevant than Berlin, which has had experienced the most dramatic events the world have ever seen! However the main sights such as Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag can be easily read about online or at the sites. And well Checkpoint Charlie is simply a well-marketed border point which is has little depth and interest in the history of the Berlin Wall (named only after being the entry of Gate C i.e. Charlie). We take you inside real highlights of Berlin.
