Prewar Berlin

Prewar Berlin
From Nikolai quarter, Berlin's charming cradle with Ephraim-Palais and Nikolai church, to the buildings of the era when the city was the Prussian residence of king Frederick the Great, and later, the imperial capital under Kaiser Wilhelm I, to the scars of World War II and the division of Germany: let yourself be captivated by the magic of famed "Unter den Linden", Berlin's famous grand boulevard and the favourite urban promenade for Berliners, with the State Opera, the Armory, and the Palace of the Crown Prince. Furthermore, we will visit Wilhelmstrasse, once the center of German politics, as well as beautiful Gendarmenmarkt and famous Friedrichstrasse, the shopping mile in the immediate vicinity. Also, we will visit the Berlin of architect Karl-Friedrich Schinkel with his masterworks of Prussian classicism, and many other sights.

New Berlin

New Berlin
The history of architecture in Berlin is one of constant metamorphosis. Since the fall of the Wall, prominent international architects have given the city a complete facelift and created an entirely new cityscape for Berlin resulting in numerous experimental and spectacular building projects. Besides magical Potsdamer Platz, which has again become a gravitational center of new Berlin, we will visit the new Central Railway Station, the government quarter with the Federal chancellery, and the glass dome atop the Reichstag, which offers breathtaking panoramic views, and has become one of the city's most popular tourist attractions. However, the appeal and allure of new Berlin is not primarily architectural, but rather, attributable to the dramatic changes in the atmosphere of the city: Today's Berlin is a relaxed, vibrant, optimistic capital, which is characterized by an unbridled curiosity about what is to come. We invite you to experience the comeback of Berlin as a world-class city!

Jewish Berlin

Jewish Berlin
We are proud to offer thematic city tours which deal with the dramatic and varied history of Jewish life in Berlin, which will provide a fascinating overview of over 300 years of the history of the Jewish community in the city.

From Wilhelminian Berlin, named after the German Emperors Wilhelm I and Wilhelm II, with its grand and prestigious buildings, to Potsdamer Platz as a focal point of new Berlin, and as a metaphor for the modern metropolis of the 21st century: we will visit the buildings designed and built by Frank O.Gehry, Sir Norman Foster, Santiago Calatrava, Jean Nouvel, I.M. Pei, Daniel Libeskind, Helmut Jahn, Renzo Piano, Rem Koolhaas, Christian de Portzamparc etc. We will show you all the major architectural innovations, from the grandiose masterpieces of contemporary architecture to the more mediocre examples, as well as buildings that truly missed the mark.

Strolling along Friedrichstrasse

Strolling along Friedrichstrasse
Nowadays, the southern stretch of this famous street in the eastern part of the city presents a modern urban image which is just as attractive and vibrant as its counterpart in the western part of the city, the boulevard Kurfürstendamm, which is an upscale mecca for sophisticated shoppers. Visually and with regard to prices as well, the highlights of this classy shopping mile are the French luxury department store Galeries Lafayette and the Friedrichstadtpassagen: three temples of consumption in art deco-style, which are connected by underground passageways. They exude an incomparable cosmopolitan flair and a new sense of 21-century urbanity.

Gendarmenmarkt - The French part of Berlin

The Gendarmenmarkt -The French part of Berlin
Gendarmenmarkt is widely regarded as the most beautiful square in Berlin.This well-proportioned and harmonious ensemble consisting of the Concert Hall, the German and the French cathedrals, serves as a striking example of a rare occurence in architectural history-a unique jewel of self-contained urban and architectural design.

The French cathedral was erected for the Huguenots, who were granted refuge as Protestant refugees from France in the 17th and 18th centuries. Being skilled craftsmen and merchants they enriched Berlin economicaly and culturally, and last but not least, linguistically and - above all - with their culinary traditions - after all, the famous Berliner Boulette ( from the Frenchword "la boulette", little meatball ) originated with the Huguenots, as well as many other expressions such to Fisimatenten, Kinkerlitzchen, Malheur etc.

Gendarmenmarkt - an oasis of harmony and tranquility in the midst of a vibrant neighbourhood.
