Mitte-Schritte

An Audio Walk through Berlin's historical city centre

Do you feel like undertaking a journey of discovery into the heart of Germany’s capital city? Any idea where to find a 360m long relief frieze that tells the history of the city? Can you imagine how an 80 tonne granite foundling boulder was transported to Berlin 200 years ago, which was then shaped into the city’s largest soup bowl?


Allow our Berlin experts Anna Guchinski and Karl Lehmann to accompany you on your audio-guided walk around Berlin’s historical city centre. Anna is an art historian very fond of pointing out minute details you would otherwise walk past without taking notice. Karl is basically at home on water; having grown up on cargo boats, he now escorts visitors to the city along the Spree river. Occasionally he does go ashore, though. That’s when he and Anna tour together, to accompany you and invite you to make fascinating discoveries in this city.

You can explore 14 different sights of interest between Alexanderplatz and the Hackescher Market Square within 80 minutes, or take time off for a cup of coffee in between and spend an entire afternoon meandering about. The audio-guided tour takes as long as you want it to. You decide your own pace.

    The tour highlights:
  • Introduction
  • Television Tower
  • Church of Mary
  • The Danse Macabre (a unique wall painting in the front hall of the Church of Mary)
