On a cold December day, my husband and I met Katrine for a 3 hour walk along and conversation about the wall. Katrine was born, raised, and socialized in East Berlin before the wall fell. Not only did we learn a lot, but we considered issues we had never thought of. This was an enjoyable and inciteful walk. I recommend this to any anyone wishing to experience history from a person who lived it.
Interesting building, however was unable to see interior of building due to summer updating and cleaning while parliament was out. Great that we were able to get in, not sure how easy it would be without tour because they booked the building security for entrance. Really a must see in the evening- city lights and so much cooler. Inside the dome can get pretty warm and stuffy....
It is difficult to get 17 members of any group, let alone a group of family members, to show up on time and generally cooperate. Our guide was patient and engaging and kept us moving. He showed us some things we might have missed on our own and shared his families as own experiences as Germans before and after the Wall came down.
We took a 4 hour bike tour of Berlin with Markus, starting and finishing at Bornheimerstrasse. Our guide was pleasant, interactive and informative, filling us in on historic, geographical and architectural detail and showing a great variety of sights during our tour. This was a great orientation activity on day one of our visit.
A superb tour, made even better by our guide, Arvid. He was so knowledgeable and obviously very proud of his country and his city. He never rushed us and was always prepared to stop and answer our questions. The content of the tour was perfect and we left the tour fully aware of all aspects of the Reichstag.
