From the colorful history of the Berlin wall to the old ports of Hamburg, fairy-tales of Bremen, Gothic cathedral of Cologne and beer gardens of Munich, Germany is a land with many gifts in its favor. Try them all — from the historic to the cultural — on an unforgettable seven-day, highlights of Germany tour.
Berlin – Welcome to Germany
Freedom of expression rules here, so after you arrive and settle into your hotel, prepare to see all sides of this diverse city. You’ll begin your adventure with a walking tour that’ll take you past the famous Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag (where politicians make important decisions) and Gendarmenmarkt square, where you’ll hear about plagues and wars, the Konzerthaus (a theater and concert hall) and the quirky rivalry between the domed German and French cathedrals.
As evening nears, you’ll stroll along Unter den Linden Boulevard, passing significant cultural and historical sites — such as Babelplatz, the State Library and Museum Island —before being taken to one of the trendiest restaurants in Berlin, La Soup Populaire. The transformed warehouse, which is run by two-Michelin-star chef and owner, Tim Raue, endeavors to bridge the gap between gastronomy and art. The menu draws inspiration from its revolving art exhibitions and traditional German cuisine, making it a fitting way to finish your first day.
