Tour description

Join me on a captivating approximately 4-hour tour through Berlin’s rich and intricate history. We’ll commence our journey at Alexanderplatz and embark on an exploration of the city’s diverse landmarks, delving deep into its fascinating past.

During our tour, we’ll visit iconic sites that include the Marx and Engels Memorial, Museums Island, the site of the Nazi book burning, Gendarmenmarkt, Checkpoint Charlie, remnants of the Berlin Wall, Hitler’s bunker, the Jewish Memorial, the Reichstag, and the Brandenburg Gate.

What distinguishes my tour is my unique perspective on history. I don’t just focus on the physical locations themselves but also on the profound ideas they represent. As a Jewish woman with Polish heritage, I approach Berlin’s history with a deep personal connection and empathy. I share the stories of my own family, intertwining personal narratives with broader historical themes.

Rather than simply presenting historical facts and events, I take a sociological approach to topics like fascism, highlighting their enduring relevance in our world today.

Together, we’ll examine how Berlin’s history has shaped its character and identity and continues to influence the city to this day. We’ll draw parallels between the past and present, reflecting on the invaluable lessons history can offer us.

So, join me on this unforgettable journey through the heart of Berlin, where we’ll gain a deeper understanding of the forces that have transformed it into the vibrant and dynamic metropolis it is today.

Please Note: Kindly be aware that no late arrivals will be accommodated 10 minutes after the tour has commenced. Thank you for your cooperation.

Our walking tour with Alex was amazing. I've gotten to LOVE the city with all my heart because of Alex's personal and historical stories of it. He was very well prepared and also gave us time and space to ask him questions about everything related and unrelated to the city itself. We felt very comfortable with him. I definitely recommend these tours, very useful and top quality program!
