Berlin: colourful and idyllic
With a population of almost four million, Berlin is a global melting pot for art, culture, politics and technology that is in a state of constant evolution. Berlin is known for its great street art and eloquent graffiti, which you can find in every corner of the city. Discover the must-see highlights on this three-hour guided tour. Watch the street artists at work, and explore exciting places hidden away from the tourist crowds. See an amazing variety of art, and learn more about the significance of the colourful murals and the cultures, passion and creative inspiration of the street artists. Immerse yourself in the colourful world of Berlin and find out why graffiti is more than just a painting on a wall.
If you prefer something quieter and more idyllic, you can also explore Potsdam, a popular destination, on a guided bike tour. On your bike, get set, go! As part of the tour, you will discover the Prussian palace complex of Sanssouci, home to the famous Orangery, two palaces and many beautiful gardens, parks and buildings. Your guide will then take you through Potsdam’s historic city centre, including the Dutch Quarter and Potsdam’s own Brandenburg Gate. Take a look around the New Gardens of the fantastic Marble Palace before heading to Cecilienhof, where Truman, Stalin and Churchill concluded the Potsdam Agreement.
Hamburg: with a view from and onto the water
The city is a labyrinth of canals, islands and bridges and one of the busiest port cities in Europe. In Hamburg, expect to see moated castles next to warehouses, morning fish markets, a museum you can board, and a bustling live music scene with clubs that have even hosted the Beatles back in the day. In short: there is a lot more to discover than just the port. Admire, for example, the Elbphilharmonie, the city’s new landmark, on a tour of the building’s exterior, and learn exciting background information. Experience the lovingly named “Elphi” up close with your professional city guide, and enjoy the unique view from the Plaza after the tour. Let your guide tell you more about the controversy surrounding the Elbphilharmonie project, and learn exciting facts and inside information about the unique acoustics, the use of special materials, the construction costs and the price of an overnight stay in the building.
Enjoying the beauty of the city from the water is a special highlight in Hamburg. Stand-up paddleboarding is a popular water sport that offers you a different perspective of the city. Explore the canals of the Alster and admire the magnificent views of the villas on its banks. Paddle your way to the lake in the city park where you can relax and listen to live music.
Munich: culinary diversity and majestic elegance
The Bavarian capital, home of the world-famous Oktoberfest, is rich in culture and history. Munich enjoys an international reputation as a metropolis of art, culture and science. Munich’s residents are especially fond of their numerous green oases, such as the English Garden, the Isar meadows and the castle parks, as well as the proximity to the Alps and the Upper Bavarian lakes.
The city also has a lot to offer in the way of food: from weißwurst (veal sausages) to pretzels, from beer to cheese - the possibilities for eating and drinking at the Viktualienmarkt are endless. On this tour of the Viktualienmarkt, you can unlock your senses with tasty treats and exciting stories about the food and the market traders.
Instead of a walk for your digestion… get on your bike. Experience the best of Munich from the saddle of a bicycle on this relaxed half-day tour of the Bavarian capital. From Königsplatz to Odeonsplatz, via the Royal Gardens, to the English Garden – on this tour you can get to know the city and its main attractions in a relaxed way.
