You will get to know the most important sights of the new and old Berlin Mitte. Explore the sites around the new Berlin City Palace which will open in 2019 as Berlin's new museum center. You will be shown the Berlin Cathedral and Museum Island, the biggest museum ensemble in the world which is a UNESCO world heritage site. Further sights you will visit and learn about on the tour are the Nikolaiviertel, TV Tower, the former GDR privy council building and the old Palace of the Republic. On its site, the new Berlin City Palace is emerging. You will also see the Bauakademie, Kommandantenhaus, the Old Museum, Lustgarten and many more. Look and see for yourself the unique density of impressive buildings.

Der Rundgang mit Wolfgang war selbst für uns als Berliner ( mit Freunden aus Dresden) außerordentlich informativ und lehrreich. Wolfgang brachte seine Infos in einer angenehm humorvollen Art an Mann und Frau und Kind. Man hat gemerkt , daß er mit dem Herzen bei der Sache war. Sehr empfehlenswert!
