Full description
Discover Berlin's numerous historic sites with a self-guided audio tour on your phone designed by an accredited expert. Listen to fascinating stories based on an award-winning storytelling concept and gain insights into the captivating history of Germany's capital. Start your tour from Alexanderplatz, home to some of Berlin’s iconic sights, and continue to explore surrounding local sites. This is an unmissable opportunity to experience at your own pace this beautiful and historical capital, and find out the hidden corners of it with a captivating audio tour on your phone. Locations: Berlin Cathedral: • Although the history of Berlin Cathedral, or Berliner Dom in German, is the largest protestant church in Germany (started in 1465), its construction was completed in the 19th century. Listen to stories about the cathedral construction, finding out which royal dynasty is buried here. Reichstag Building: • This building, where the German parliament is housed, is the core of the political system and power of Germany. After peripeties and negotiations, the former palace was replaced by the building which became the home of the 19th century General Assembly. Later, its capture by the Soviet army marked the end of WWII and the victory over the Nazis. Brandenburg Gate: • The Brandenburg Gate is not only one of Berlin’s landmarks, but also a symbol of peace and unity. Its neoclassical structure is a reminder of King Frederick William II’s aspirations to construct a new Athens on the river Spree, while the winged victory on its top recalls the arrival of Napoleon in Berlin. Follow the footsteps of the French leader in order to find out how the sculpture was once found in Paris. Checkpoint Charlie: • Today it appears as nothing more than a little shed in the middle of a modern, busy street, but Checkpoint Charlie is the embodiment of the post-war decades that not only shaped Berlin or Germany but the entire world. It is a symbol of the Cold War era, as well as of the time Berlin was divided by the Wall. It served as a single-person crossing-point from West Berlin into East Berlin and vice versa. Listen to the stories about the escapes and how Checkpoint Charlie became the theatre of the Berlin Crisis of 1961.
