Enjoy an exciting journey through Berlin's history and discover the city's landmarks at your own pace
With this audio guide we will take you to the most important sights of Berlin, a fascinating city with countless attractions and highlights!
Whether you are interested in unique world heritage sites, historical locations, idyllic lakes and parks, legendary nightlife, shopping or gastronomy, Berlin has something for everyone!
Even though the German capital was founded in the 13th century and is relatively young compared to other metropolises, the city has a moving history that has been subject to profound changes.
As the residential city of the electors, Prussian kings and German emperors, Berlin experienced glorious times during the 500 years of Hohenzollern rule. However, when Adolf Hitler came to power in January 1933, Berlin became the capital of the "Third Reich".
This is how the darkest chapter in its history began.The following four decades when the city was occupied and divided are also characterized by dark periods. The city, which was divided into the capital of the GDR and West Berlin, did not regain its eagerly awaited freedom and unity until 1989, when the Wall came down, which had divided the city into East and West for 28 years.
Today, Berlin is the country's largest city with 3.7 million inhabitants and is one of the most attractive and livable cities in the world. In addition to Berlin's qualities of cosmopolitanism, tolerance and individuality, the vibrant metropolis today stands above all for freedom. Berlin's attitude towards life and the unique testimonies of its eventful past make the city one of the most popular destinations worldwide!
Immerse yourself now with us in the different eras of the city and discover the ultimate highlights, which you shouldn't miss on your Berlin trip!

Your culinary cravings are also taken into consideration; we have built-in stops where you can taste typical dishes of the delicious Berlin cuisine while taking a breather before moving on to the next attraction. Almost all of the sites can be easily reached by foot. Most places are free of charge, but you will also encounter some attractions that have an entrance fee. It is best to listen to the informative audio commentary beforehand and decide for yourself whether a visit from outside will satisfy your curiosity or whether you would like to take a closer look inside.
To give you the most complete picture of this fascinating city, we have included bonus material from other remote areas at the end of the tour.
Does all of this make you curious? Well then, let’s go! Or as the Berliner would say: "Ran an de Buletten!"
However, since you will surely want to visit one or the other museum, go to the observation deck of the Berlin TV Tower, and taste delicious Berlin specialties during a break, the tour will of course take correspondingly longer.
