In the Niederkirchner Straße you can find the city parliament, the Martin-Gropius-Bau, a museum with changing exhibitions, the Topography of Terror, which exhibits the history of the Nazis and of the Jews’ suffering under the Nazis, as well as the Ministry of Finance, which was once the Nazi Ministry of Aviation.

On Friedrichstraße you come across one of the nicest spots in Berlin, the Gendarmenmarkt, with two similar buildings, the German and French Cathedrals. The Konzerthaus Berlin is in the middle of the square. After the Gendarmenmarkt it’s on to Alexanderplatz and the TV Tower. The stop for these sights is the Neptune Fountain. This used to be the Berlin City Palace. Here you will also have the opportunity to go shopping. The next stop is Karl-Liebknecht-Straße, in front of the Radisson Hotel. From here you can transfer on to a boat if you wish to experience Berlin by boat as well as bus.

As a wheelchair user I was a bit sceptical about being stuck downstairs and seeing through dirty windows. But the bus was really easy to get in and I could get right up to the window and it was all clean so the tour round Berlin was brilliant. I would definitely recommend the Hoho to get a good overview of the city.

The best way to get to know Berlin. Its history, its curiosities and a pleasant trip on the river Spree. And I won't tell you about the tasty surprise!!!

Muy bueno uno conoce de la historia de la ciudad sin necesidad de bajarse del bus…
