About This Berlin Tour
If there is one landmark in Berlin that is considered more important than the rest, it is Brandenburg Gate. A national symbol of the country, it survived World War II, it represented the East and West divide, plus history was made on the grounds numerous times. In fact, it was considered part of the Berlin Wall before the 100-mile wall fell, due to its specific position.
One of the most memorable speeches during the National Socialist movement took place at the gate on June 12th, 1987, when America’s 40th president Ronald Reagan said the famous line “tear down this wall.” A memorial plaque in honor of Reagan’s speech was unveiled in 2012.
Other memorials can be found at Tiergarten, Berlin's most popular inner-city park.This park is 520 acres in size and is one of the largest urban gardens of Germany. Around 1527 is when Tiergarten can be traced back and it was considered a central location within the city when the Nazi Party took control of Germany in1933
Just a stone’s throw from the two kilometer stretch of wall is Checkpoint Charlie. The scene of a tank stand-off in 1961, it is the most famous border crossing and has been featured in many spy thrillers. Take a moment to think about Third Reich victims at the Holocaust Memorial.
The brainy bunch
Berlin boasts more universities than anywhere else in Germany, with approximately 134,000 students enrolling in education at universities and colleges around the metropolis. Home to a brainy bunch, the multi-cultural city has 175 museums and more bridges than Venice.
