Warnemunde (Berlin), Germany
Information Not Currently Available
Approximately 12½ Hours
This tour features a complete overview of Berlin with less detail and more time for shopping.
Begin with a 2½-hour escorted train ride through the Mecklenburg countryside to Berlin. During the journey, your host will hand out a light snack and water.
Upon arrival in Berlin, your city guide will meet you at the platform and walk you to your motorcoach. Take a panoramic drive past some of the major highlights of the capital with photo stops at the Brandenburg Gate and the remaining parts of the Berlin Wall.
Stop for lunch at a traditional restaurant.
An approximately 40-minute boat ride along the River Spree showcases the sights and sounds of the capital from the water -- beautiful Museum Island, the Berlin Cathedral, the Reichstag building and the amazing Government quarter.
You will also have approximately 45 minutes of free time for shopping and browsing on the Kurfürstendamm -- Germany's most famous shopping boulevard.
