Take a walking tour of some of Berlin’s 20th century historical sights. From the bunker to where Hitler spent his final hours, to the remains of the Wall, to Checkpoint Charlie. Fascinating and involving for all including your little history buffs in-the-making.

A country suffering from an image problem? Certainly in the UK, but we're out to change all that. The Germans are a deeply cultured bunch, and be it in Berlin or Munich or beyond, there are museums and high art institutions to sate the most ravenous of culture vultures.
Why we think you’ll love it
- Everyone has heard of Germany's famous Christmas markets, so where better to experience them than in its capital city. There are over 60 markets in Berlin, but the best are at the Charlottenburg Palace and on the beautiful Gendarmen market Square.
- Mitte, in old East Berlin, is the epicentre of all that's in in Berlin, with its studied communist era look-and-feel bars and boutiques selling vintage clothing and furniture.
