The Famous Insider Walk
Daily Walking Tours in Berlin
“Walk by Insider Tour” is a great way to get a feel for the city of Berlin. No reservations required — just show up, rain or shine, at one of the two meeting points (it is the same tour, no matter which point you start from). The fee is 12 Euro (we paid 9 Euro after a discount from the Berlin Welcome Card for Berlin public transportation).
The tour is four hours, with a short 20-minute coffee break. You see many of the sites, including the Brandenburg Gate, the longest remaining stretch of the Wall in Berlin, Checkpoint Charlie, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, the site of Hitler’s bunker, and more.
Our guide was Barnaby, and he was excellent. He had moved to Berlin from London 10 years ago. He had intended to stay for only 6 months, yet he is still there. He has studied a great deal of the history of the city and feels it is his calling to share the story of the city with all who want to learn.
