Explore Berlin on a bus

Despite its deep-rooted history, Berlin still feels like a city coming of age. With a striking contrast between historical buildings and modern architecture, a flourishing cultural scene, and an exceptional variety of attractions, Berlin, aside from its exuberance, continuously reinvents itself. This is what sets it apart from the rest and why anyone should be keen enough to explore it.

Getting around such a place can sometimes be a hassle, which is why this bus tour across Berlin is your most convenient option! With departures every 10 minutes, the yellow, open-topped, double-decker bus takes you through two well-planned routes that cover Berlin’s top attractions. With 26 stops, you can decide where you want to hop on, or hop off. The city is yours for the taking and you can explore its streets and monuments the way you please. The Berlin Wall Tour follows the course of the former Wall, taking you, among other things, to see the trendy neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg, full of historic buildings, cafes, and indie boutiques, Friedrichshain with its punk-locals and artistic collections, the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse, which is fraught with history, the murals of the East Side Gallery, the Jewish Museum and much more!

This tour introduces you to the most important sights of Berlin, such as the Brandenburg Gate, Charlottenburg Palace, Potsdamer Platz and the former Checkpoint Charlie.

View Berlin from the exciting perspective of a cruise!

The Spree is a river that runs through the city center of Berlin, allowing you to view the most famous sights of Berlin from the waterside. This truly creates a unique scenery for an exciting trip. The one-hour boat ride cruises along various historical places, allowing you to view Berlin from an entirely different perspective altogether.

From the cruise, you can view exciting attractions like The Reichstag building which has been burned, bombed, rebuilt, and finally turned into the modern home of the German parliament. Formerly known as Congress Hall, The House of World Cultures, is a well known and easily spottable landmark, largely because of the extravagance of its roof structure. Between the park’s lush green meadows and the banks of the Spree, the House of World Cultures brings authenticity and contemporary art from around the world for Berliners and tourists to ogle upon. Another attraction you can view from the cruise is Admiralspalast​, Berlin’s great entertainment venue. You will also see Bellevue Palace, the Central Station, the Berlin Cathedral, the Museum Island and the oldest residential area of Berlin, the Nicholai Quarter.

Rest assured, you are to have a memorable experience that remains unparalleled when it comes to Berlin and its many touristy hot spots!
