Approximately 12½ Hours
Start your day with a scenic, escorted coach ride through the countryside of North Germany. During this journey to Berlin, your host will hand out a light breakfast snack and water.
Upon arrival in the city, an experienced local guide boards the coach. Your Berlin experience begins with a comprehensive sightseeing drive covering many of the major sights. You will see the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag parliament building and a remnant of the Berlin Wall.
Visit Potsdam Square, home to the famous Sony Center. This extensive mall contains a mix of shops, restaurants, a conference center, hotels and a film museum. Enjoy some free time here for shopping or to purchase lunch (at your own expense).
The constant juxtaposition of old and new is undoubtedly the source of Berlin's charm, so you will continue your sightseeing to the former Eastern Sector of Berlin. The Nikolai Quarter is called the cradle of Berlin. The city's oldest church, Nikolai Church, resides here. Step inside visit St Hedwig's Cathedral -- the first Catholic church in Prussia, built in the late 18th century and modeled after the Pantheon of Rome.
From the cathedral in Opera Square, it's just a short walk over to the New Museum. During a 60-minute audio-guided visit, explore the vast exhibits and admire the beautiful Nefertiti bust.
Your last stop is at the Hackescher Markt -- a very famous inner-courtyards and garden area that has developed into the cultural and commercial center of Berlin. Stroll on your own, taking in the lively atmosphere, before heading back to Warnemünde.
Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience at the New Museum. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Bring local currency, as many vendors do not accept credit cards or US dollars. Use of public restroom facilities costs 50 cents - €1 cash. Shops are closed on Sundays and holidays; a few souvenir shops may be open. The tour sequence may vary depending on traffic conditions.
