When your cruise ship docks at Warnemuende Port, hop into a luxury car and sit back and relax on your chauffeur-driven ride to Berlin. After roughly 2.5 hours on the road, arrive in the city and meet your private guide – a local expert who’s ready to introduce you to sights and history of beautiful Berlin.
Admire Brandenburg Gate – an iconic symbol of Berlin – and pose for photos next to the Berlin Wall while hearing about the futile division of Germany following World War II. Amble past Berlin Cathedral to marvel at its medley of architectural styles, and then see the TV Tower -- the city’s most popular attraction.
Your guide will happily recommend the best restaurants and cafes in town, before leaving you to enjoy lunch (own expense). Meet back at the pre-arranged time, and continue sightseeing around town.
Given the city’s complex modern history, many of its sights hark back to the days of WWII, and its vibrant streets echo with reminders of its past. Scout out the most poignant WWII monuments, like the Holocaust Memorial and War Memorial, while hearing their history from your guide. Take a walk through Checkpoint Charlie – the only point where visitors could cross between east and west Germany during the country’s separation – and then see Hitler’s Bunker, as well as sites like the Nazi Air Ministry and Bebelplatz -- the scene of the Nazi book burning.
Finally, get a taste of the city’s cosmopolitan culture, with visits to Potsdamer Platz and Gendarmenmarkt – two of the city’s must-visit squares. If museums are more your thing, then head to one of the city’s leading museums, like Pergamon Museum (own expense). You are free to explore independently its staggering collection of artifacts – treasures of ancient civilization from around the world.
Bid a fond farewell to the city and your guide, and then relax as your driver transfers you back to Warnemuende Port.
