Full description
Timed to your arrival in the port of Rostock, your day trip to Berlin begins shortly after your arrival with pickup in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus with Wi-Fi. Head straight to Berlin to see the vivacious city’s most stunning sights. Tour the government quarter, replete with stately buildings and monuments, like the Reichstag, the Brandenburg Gate, Pariser Platz, the Tiergarten, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews, and Hitler's bunker. 

From there, head south through Potsdamer Platz to see the remains of the Berlin Wall, the former Headquarters of the SS and Gestapo, and Checkpoint Charlie. Time permitting, you’ll head up Friedrichstrasse to the classic heart of the German capital, which includes Gendarmenmarkt, one of the city’s most ornate squares, Unter den Linden, downtown Berlin’s central arterial, Museum Island, and the former Royal Palace of Berlin, which is currently being rebuilt. 

After lunch, bus to the northern outskirts of Berlin to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial for a 60 to 75-minute visit, led by an expert guide. Learn firsthand of the atrocities carried out under Nazi rule as you tour the well-preserved concentration camp.

Afterwards, you’ll be whisked back to your cruise ship, in perfect time for your departure.
