Hear what Berliners once said about the Neptune Fountain and where it was previously located. Immerse yourself in a poignant chapter of the city's recent history not far from St. Mary’s Church, where women protested against the arrest of their husbands in 1943. Discover the interesting history of Berlin Cathedral and see a small stone that commemorates the courageous people who opposed the Nazis in 1942.

The most beautiful square in Berlin commemorates a large theater fire and the beginning of a famous opera by Jacques Offenbach. You will also take a look behind the scenes of the street Unter den Linden. Discover a inner courtyard full of technology and an eventful history.

It was very informative and even those who already know Berlin have learned a lot of new things. Very nice guide who responded to our requests and even covered a bit to find a nice ending.
