Once arrived in Berlin, a guide brings you to a comfortable hotel. In the afternoon you walk with a guide to the ancient Berlin of Friedrich the Great, starting at the Gendarmenmarkt, along the Unter den Linden and the Museumisland, finishing this walking tour at a café behind the Bodemuseum. The first evening you can join for a ‘diner dansante’. If you take your dancing shoes with you, nobody will leave you seated! Do not feel obliged to anything, just enjoying the atmosphere with a drink is a good alternative to the busy dancing floor! Of course you can choose a theater or concertvisit in town. Take care that you have reserved your tickets before you leave! Berlin people like to go out. The second day a bus will pick you up from the hotel for a citytour along the highlights of Berlin! In this tour there is special attention for the partition of Berlin during the Cold War. You get out of the bus at the Bernauer Strasse, a monument for these years and at the East Side Gallery. During a lunch break and/or a walking pause you can stretch your legs. Around two o’clock the guide will bring you to the Kurfürstendamm for a shopping tour in your own time! In the evening hours the guide can take you for a diner alongside the lakeshore of one of Berlin’s famous lakes. The bustour will lead you through five citydistricts; Schöneberg, Wilmersdorf, Steglitz, Lichterfelde and Zehlendorf.
The third day is planned for Potsdam, the city of the rich, the beautiful and the famous, also the capital of Brandenburg, in the southwest of Berlin. Potsdam is a baroque city where the Hohenzollern kings liked to reside or stay over for the summer time. Surrounded by lakes, great biking trails, well designed gardens and palaces this city is an idylle you should not miss! In the morning your guide picks you up for a tour through the Marmorpalace or the Neuen Kammern, the guestrooms of Friedrich the Great. Lunchtime you can enjoy with the group in one of the restaurants in the Dutch Quarter of Potsdam. After lunch the guide takes you for a walk through the old, baroque city centre of Potsdam to the gardens of Sans Souci, from which you have a great view at the castle of Friedrich the Great. You will see the fantastic mountain with wine- and figplants and visit the grave of the old Fritz! The bus is leaving this pittoresque city late in the afternoon to drive you to a restaurant in Berlin.
The fourth day a biking tour is planned alongside the river Spree. The guide will explain the beautiful, impressive, gouvernmental buildings, the house of Merkel en the project MediaSpree. Then it is time for a last common lunch before departure with your plane or train!
