Solo exploring is all well and good, but a visit to Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Dome with a guide will see the history of Berlin's Regierungsviertel etched in your mind. You'll be collected by a passionate historian at the Akademie der Künste, then start your 90-minute tour.
As you wander, you'll hear a little of Berlin's long history, and about the German capital's transformation since one of the most famous walls in history fell in 1991. Then, it's off to the city's symbol of democracy: the Reichstag.
Explore the German parliament building, potentially as critical decisions are debated inside, and learn about its construction way back in 1894. Peek in at parliamentary proceedings from the iconic glass dome, and from the roof of the building you'll admire modern Berlin as it rolls out in front of you. Can you point out Berlin Cathedral and the New Synagogue? How about Potsdamer Platz?
All the while, your personal history buff will answer all the questions you could possibly have and provide fascinating context about the once-divided city you see from on high.
