During a guided tour, learn about Berlin as the cultural capital and the heart of some of the world's most devastating conflicts.
The German capital experienced devastating conflicts in the twentieth century, but the seeds of those conflicts were sown centuries before: Gain a broad understanding of the political and ideological forces that fueled genocide and global war in the twentieth century. Explore Berlin's iconic landmarks while emphasizing the turbulent Nazi and Cold War eras, and learn how tiny Prussia's violent transformation into Europe's dominant military power in the 1700s already set the stage for recent history's great tragedies.
Admire the famed Reichstag building's glass translucent dome, which has become a symbol of modern Germany's commitment to democracy. Explore the neoclassical Brandenburg Gate from the 18th century and learn more about the numerous famous events that have occurred there, from Napoleon's triumphant entrance to Ronald Reagan's cold war address. Admire the Pergamon, Neues Museum, and Alte Nationalgalerie on Museum Island, a one-of-a-kind collection of five great Berlin museums erected during Prussian control on the Spree island.
Pass by the famous Potsdamer Platz, which has resurfaced since the collapse of the Berlin Wall, and stroll down the grand boulevard "Unter den Linden," Berlin's answer to Paris' Champs-Elysées in the nineteenth century. Immerse yourself in the serene gardens of the Tiergarten, an inner-city park, and take a moment to think at the Holocaust Memorial.
Finally, discuss with your guide Berlin's current triumphs and contrast the dynamic modern metropolis recognized for multiculturalism, tolerance, and creativity with the city's unfortunate past.
