Follow the route of the Soviet attack up to the final batlle ground of the Reichstag Parliament - now adorned with Norman Foster's glass dome, and by the new futuristically charged Government Quarter and Federal Chancellory ... then comes the East! Pass over the line of the Death Strip, under the Brandenburg Gate, by the Holocaust Memorial, Hitler's Bunker, Checkpoint Charlie, and finish with an account of the momentous events which led to the fall of the Wall while standing amongst the heart of the East German Government Quarter and the New Berlin.

Insight into everyday life in East Germany in terms of education, health, culture, the existence of the Stasi and "Anti Fascist" barrier of the Wall.

3. Berlin by Night WalkingTour

Drive a stake through the nocturnal heart of Berlin and experience Berlin at dusk! Berlin nights gave inspiration to romantic poets, anonymity to leasure seekers and a mystical backdrop to the zeal of Nazi progaganda events. It also provides the setting for a new tour which brings to life the drama evoked by the interplay of light and shadow, and by the contrast of empty streets and crowded bars. Join us for a leisurely stroll exploring: Berlin's cultural life, Jewish history and rich literary legacy. Insider tips on culinary hotspots and bars for the discerning drinker. Along the way we will visit: The Hackescher Höfe – the largest Hof-complex of its kind in Europe, The Pleasure Garden – site of the1936 torch lighting ceremony and Nazi pageantry Bebelplatz – the illuminated memorial to the Nazi book burning, which comes to best effect at night Oranienburgerstrasse – the center of Berlin Jewish life and "New Berlin" nightlife Museum Island – where art was infused with an almost religious meaning Brecht’s Ensemble – where theatre was supposed to merely provide the prelude to revolution. Having emerged from the tour, you will realise that Berlin is essentially a nocturnal creature, a vampire, and in the company of Tom and Andrew you will have the unique opportunity to drive a stake through its historical heart. The guides will ensure that all your needs are catered for at the end of the tour (e.g. transport)
