Full description
Germany's capital is home to a thriving tourism industry. But beyond the tourist swarms and world-famous historic landmarks lies a hidden world to see and experience in Berlin.

Get an insight into the everyday life of Berliners on your tour of one of the city's most famous districts. Visit the area known as "Little Istanbul" and the former Tempelhof airport. Look back to the time of the Berlin Blockade at the Airlift Memorial, and stroll through an area that, thanks to being spared from bombings during the war and being squatted in the 1970s, has survived to this day.

Then, pay a visit to the largest church in Berlin and, finally, head to the famous Oranienstraße. Hear stories about the Wall, local petting zoos, vegetable gardens in the city center, and the unique "Berlin mix."
