Full description
Enjoy a 3.5-hour private tour of Berlin in a Russian “Bukhanka” minibus, hitting all the most important historical and cultural highlights. Start with pickup at your accommodation and head across the Spree to the center of the German capital where you’ll see the Reichstag and the monumental Soviet War Memorial Tiergarten, which bore witness to bloody fighting in the spring of 1945.   Passing by the famous Brandenburg Gate, your next stop is the former border crossing Checkpoint Charlie, where Soviet and American tanks faced each other in the heyday of the Cold War in the early 1960s. Head to Alexanderplatz and Karl-Marx Boulevard, impressive urban development projects of the socialist GDR. Between the TV tower, the socialist mosaics, and the Soviet classicism and socialist brutalism, you’ll feel the old splendor of East Berlin.   Next, the “Bukhanka” vintage van will take you back over the Spree River to the kilometer-long Eastside Gallery, which was once part of the insurmountable Berlin Wall. For the grand finale, head towards Treptower Park with its gigantic Soviet War Memorial, combining deep history and impressive architecture.
