This first walking tour took place on a Sunday afternoon and aims to provide an overview of some of the main sites and events in Berlin's history.
This walking tour took place on Monday morning. We caught a tube to Mohrenstrasse station and then walked to the other sites. We then caught a train to Sachsenhausen concentration camp for a guided tour before returning back to the hotel.
This walking tour took place on Tuesday morning. We explored the open air museum at Bernauer Strasse, then went to The Mall for a lunchtime break (with students having the option to check out other sites in the area at their own pace). We then had a guided tour at the Story of Berlin (we got off the tube near the Gedachtniskirche and walked there).
Next year I will overhaul the itinerary to allow us to check out a range of other sites, most of which are listed here.
