Germany’s capital has symbols of the past around every corner, and this driving tour gives you the chance to take a closer look at the must-sees. First up is one of the headliners – the Berlin Wall. It was built in the Sixties to separate the nation’s East and West, and stood for nearly 30 years. After ticking this off your list, you’ll move on to Checkpoint Charlie. Also on the agenda are Bebel Platz – where the Nazis ordered a mass book-burning back in 1933 – and Potsdamer Platz – where the first wall gap was made. There’ll be a stop at the Holocaust Memorial, too, and a photo call at the imposing Brandenburg Gate. Your lunch, meanwhile, is at one of the city’s cosy pubs, where you’ll tuck in to a traditional German meal. Shopping time’s factored in as well, to pick up souvenirs to take home.
The drive to Berlin takes about 3 hours.
