Berlin Architecture Tour - East Vs. West

Architecture in Berlin:

East Vs West – (Half Day/4 Hours)

Tour Overview

“Berlin is a city condemned forever to becoming and never to being.” Karl Scheffler, author of “Berlin: The Fate of a City”, 1910.

Berlin’s legacy of artistic innovation and chaotic political change has left behind a fascinating cityscape. Neoclassical and baroque masterpieces characterize the streets of Berlin’s historic city center, while the stark comparison between East and West Berlin neighborhoods reflect their different experiences during post-war reconstruction.

On this tour you’ll join a private guide, gaining an insight into the glorious clash that is Berlin’s skyline. In our city, ordinary everyday buildings stand side by side with the most impressive architectural experiments of historic and modern times. We’ll explore the best and the worst of what was left behind – the monstrous and glorious constructions of kings and emperors, as well as the relics left behind by tyrannical dictatorships.
